THERE WE WERE, NOW HERE WE ARE : JUNE 2016

As the Northern Ireland team headed to France for the European Championship, work continued on the stadium redevelopment, with a turnstile being added to the Railway Stand, and the pitch getting relayed.

As the team arrived in France, a major milestone of the redevelopment was rached in early June when the first seats were installed in The Kop.

On the opening night of Euro 2016, Windsor Park hosted a bike stunt show, Nitro Circus.

At the end of the 2015-2016 season, it looked like Linfield fans had seen the last of the North Stand, but they were back in there for their first game of the 2016-2017 season, a UEFA Cup tie against Cork City.

On the day of that match between Linfield and Cork, the NIFL opened their offices at Windsor Park, naming them after Mervyn Brown, former Secretary of the Irish League.
