Lovers of food and drink rejoiced in August when it was announced that a contractor was in place to operate the match day bars and catering.
The bad news was, it wouldn’t start until 1st September.
Also launched at Windsor Park in August was the 2017 Under 19 Women’s European Championship, with the final being at Windsor Park.
2017 could be a busy summer for Windsor Park, with Carl Frampton once again expressive his desire to have a fight at Windsor Park.
In the middle of the month, Linfield began decorating the interior, with artwork of legends and iconic moments being added to the club’s offices.
The end of August 2016 saw the first Women’s game since the redevelopment, with Linfield Ladies game against Mid Ulster Ladies being staged there, due to Linfield being presented with the league title after the game. Remember when the Men’s team used to win league titles?
