Tsirion stadium cleared

Restrictions to the use of Tsirion stadium’s eastern stands – imposed early last week due to structural problems – have now been lifted, the Cyprus Football Association (CFA) said on Thursday.

In a statement, the federation acknowledged receipt of written confirmation by the stadium’s civil engineer Themos Demetriou, that it was safe to use the stadium.

“As a result, any restriction imposed on the use of the eastern stand is lifted,” the statement said.

Tsirion, Limassol’s main sporting venue and home ground to the town’s three major football clubs, was ruled unfit to host crowd-gathering events following a report commissioned by the Limassol Municipality, which said that parts of the stadium’s stands had been worn out and posed safety risks.

The football association had promptly issued a statement banning use of the stands until written confirmation had been received from Demetriou on the stadium’s safety.
