The Irish Football Association has confirmed it has been granted the funding needed for the redevelopment of Windsor Park.

The Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL) have approved the £31million funding for the modernisation of the national football stadium in Belfast.

Sports Minister Carl Ni Chuilin said: "This signals a new chapter in the history of Windsor Park.

"Funding of £31m will allow the Irish Football Association to modernise Windsor and raise the capacity to 18,000. This is a tremendous boost for the local football family which will see two new stands and two refurbished stands."

The minister said construction work would start in 2014.

The redevelopment will cost up to £35m in total, with the remaining £4m coming from the IFA.

It will include the completion of the East Stand, demolition of the South Stand and the construction of a new stand and renovation to the North and West Stands.
