The Prime Minister, Hon. Dean Barrow announced on Wave Radio’s “Fus thing da Mawnin’ that two weeks ago Cabinet made a decision that the MCC grounds will be used exclusively for football and sporting activities. PM Barrow stated that cultural fairs and other events that would have been held on the MCC grounds will no longer be entertained.

The decision by Cabinet was taken by public complaints by members of the public including the Football Federation of Belize following an anniversary concert held on the MCC by BTL on December 14th. Following the event pictures were circulated of damages done to the field causing concern as to whether or not the field should be used for public gatherings.  Now the Cabinet has made a decision and the MCC will no longer be used for public events except they are sporting ones.
