Following the serious findings and the professional opinion and in accordance with the Municipal By-Law, the stadium building was declared a dangerous structure by the city engineer today.”

The schedules for dismantling the roof and setting up the new lighting fixtures will be submitted in the coming days for municipal approval, but despite the mayor’s announcement that the goal is to “get the stadium back on track, as soon as possible”, Yossi Aboksis’ team will not be able to play at home most of next season.
