On January 17th, 2015, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr. Abdul-Hussain Abtan, along with members of the house of the Representatives, the deputy governor of Babil and members of the provincial council, visited Babil Stadium site to take note of the operating procedures.
Minister Abtan said that ¨We have visited the province of Babil to inspect the functioning of the ministerial projects implemented by the Ministry¨, pointing that the ¨ realization of Babil Sports City is one of the important strategic projects of the Ministry¨, reaffirming that ¨ the presence of a large delay in the implementation, is because of ¨The ministry and not because of the executing company Triarena¨.
The Minister met with representatives of Triarena that carried out the Project and put an end to the problems and obstacles hindering the work. He ordered the release of the financial grants to the company which was stopped for various reasons including bureaucracy.
Abtan called for ¨the cooperation with Triarena and to overcome all the difficulties that disabled the functioning¨. He explained ¨ the decision to give Triarena additional time and to pay its dues so it can go ahead to complete the project¨
He looks forward for the work resumption as the Babil Sports City will be a sport monument as well as an urban interface for Babil province.
