Premiership side Montego Bay United and the St James Parish Council have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which will see the club benefiting from a 10 million-dollar investment from the parish council for the 2013-14 football season.
As a consequence of this lucrative investment, which is not in cash but in kind, Montego Bay United will once again use the Montego Bay Stadium for their Red Stripe Premier League home games.
The club will partner with the council in seeking out sponsorship deals, as well as marketing the city and the club.
Montego Bay’s mayor, councillor Glendon Harris says through the 10 million-dollar investment, the mayor office will be aiming to transform the city from the ugly labels such as ‘scam capital’, ‘drug capital’ and ‘murder capital’.
Orville Powell, president and CEO of Montego Bay United says this is an investment in the youngsters we are trying to rescue from going the wrong way.
Powell also says the return to the Montego Bay Stadium has given the club a major boost.
Under the joint arrangement between the club and the parish council, gate receipts generated at the stadium will go towards meeting match expenses and game preparation.
