Stephenson, at the Opening Ceremony of the 2011 Biabou Football League last Sunday, February 27, said: “I have started plans to have a first class facility at the area where the old bus stop is, for the continued development of sports in the Biabou community”.

“The facility I envisage would have two floors, the basement, which will include a change room, a wash room facility, and on top of that, we would have an area for bar, and an area for entertainment”.

Stephenson said that the top floor will house a media centre and some seating for dignitaries and other invited guests.

The Area Representative said that the architectural designs for the proposed facility are at an advanced stage.

“During the term, I am going to ensure that by God’s grace that this facility becomes a reality,” Stephenson assured those present last Sunday.

“It will come a reality to complement the Bleachers which the Biabou Evangelical Church has built,” Stephenson added.

At the opening of the 2010 Biabou League, the Bleachers were formally opened. The Bleachers, which provide seating for persons attending sporting events at the Biabou Playing Field, as well as for vendors plying their trade, were built by the Biabou Evangelical Church.

The gesture made by the church was to mitigate the danger posed to spectators who had to stand in the road, with heavy vehicular traffic coming from both ends.

The 2011 Biabou Football, League should see close to 20 teams participating.

The league is one of the more popular out of season competitions, and is a Nine A Side affair.
