By Jonny Bell

The IFA has confirmed it is to open a new education and heritage centre at the redeveloped national stadium at Windsor Park.

Fans have called for football chiefs to allow fans to tour the stadium to allow them to relive the team's past glories.

In response the IFA has confirmed that there will be a new education and heritage centre at Windsor and its hoped tours will be offered.

An IFA spokesman said further details will be made available closer to the centre's opening.

Windsor is currently in the final stages of a £32million pound redevelopment.

While the Kop stand is being rebuilt after the discovery of structural damage to the 4,000-seater structure.

The new stadium is expected to be officially unveiled ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

And the heritage and education centre is to open in the autumn.
