Rugby stadium to be built at Ghajn Dwieli
The government is allocating €7.5 million for the game of rugby, including new stadium facilities at Ghajn Dwieli.
Land for the rugby stadium at Ghajn Dwieli was this morning transferred to the Malta Rugby Football Union along with funds for its development.
The union was also granted the non-exclusive use of three pitches in Marsa along with ancillary facilities including showers, changing rooms and administration rooms.
The deeds were signed between the union and the Malta Council for Sports.
Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi and Parliamentary Secretary for Sports Clyde Puli were present.
Mr Puli said this project was the latest of 60 projects carried out in 60 months as part of the government's commitment to improve the people's quality of life.
