THE Bulawayo City Council has identified a site it intends constructing a new state of the art Stadium that conforms to  Fifa and Caf standards.

It has also emerged that installation of new bucket seats at Barbourfields Stadium will see its carrying capacity reducing to 12 000.

An assistant director in the department of housing and community services confirmed the development in a report in the latest council minutes.

He said considerations for a new stadium were already underway and a new site for the facility had been identified, although the exact location of the site was not mentioned.

He was responding to an inquiry by councillor Felix Mhaka on refurbishment works being done at Barbourfields Stadium so that it meets Fifa and Caf standards.

Mhaka had suggested that council either demolishes Luveve or White City Stadium to build a new stadium.
