A report detailing the costs to erect large screens in Coleraine, Ballymoney, Ballycastle and Limavady to cover the upcoming Euro 2016 Football Matches will go before Council’s Corporate Policy and Resources committee tonight.
The report was put together by Council Officers after the following motion was passed in October : “that Council Officers investigate the cost of providing screens for viewing the NI Team EUFA Euro 2016 football matches in the four main areas of Ballycastle, Ballymoney, Limavady and Coleraine, for its citizens.”
Councillors are given two options to consider in the report. Covering only the Group Stages, and covering the Full Tournament.
Covering the group stages would cost £65,537, while covering the full tournament would cost £94,897.
The costs are based on providing four screens, one in each town.
