The Strangford MLA said: “There’s only so long that unionists can stall over the all-sports stadium. If they waste any more time this could mean no new stadium anywhere in Northern Ireland.
“While unionists are involved in this stalling exercise, Alliance will push for delivery instead of delay. Irrespective of the location, if progress is not made soon, then we may lose out on the chance of having a new stadium altogether.
“Since we are now convinced that the GAA will not accept the North Foreshore site, the only real option for an all-sports stadium is the Maze.
“To create economic growth and boost tourism and hospitality, we need to build a new all-sports stadium here.
“We cannot afford to simply keep the status quo or else we will fall behind other regions in the UK and wider Europe. We need a new stadium, to allow major international events to be held here and to ensure we have a shared space for big matches and concerts.”
