There have been no formal applications for funding from HRM to other levels of government on an outdoor stadium, but Mayor Peter Kelly doesn’t appear to be concerned.

“We have met with the premier and other staff on staff-to-staff levels and we’ve met with ministers in Ottawa,” he said on Tuesday.

Kelly said Halifax regional council will find out the results of those discussions when the stadium report is brought up to council March 27 –’ four days before the deadline set by the Canadian Soccer Association.

Halifax is one of seven cities looking to host the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup of Soccer.
