Building for future: Crusaders are hoping to construct a new stand alongside St Vincent Street

The Northern Ireland Executive says it's edging closer to implementing the Sub Regional Stadia Programme for football and Crusaders manager Stephen Baxter has argued that the Irish League needs improved facilities to continue to thrive.

The football infrastructure in Northern Ireland has suffered from years of neglect, but there is light on the horizon with the much needed Government funding being assembled.

It's a long running saga which has curtailed the game's progress, but clubs are hopeful stadium funding will be released soon.
