New Grass Field Soon

Category: | 0 Replies


Footballers and their fans can expect to see a new grass field in about a month’s time.
Work began last weekend on the Eastern side of the Barbados Football Association’s (BFA) Wildey Turf and is at a cost of $150,000.
President Randy Harris said the grass field would be divided into sections and would allow for national teams to practice and for youth competitions to be held. 
“Sometimes our national teams, men and women, play in countries that have grass pitches. It will also be divided into sections so some of our junior games can be played there as well,” he said. 
Harris noted that the project was fully funded by the football world’s governing body FIFA, which went a long way in ensuring the FA provided the necessary facilities for its players. He added that with this additional field, the Bajan Tridents would be more equipped to face international opponents going forward.  
“It is important in terms of the development of our facilities in the Caribbean, and we must ensure that we provide pitches for our players. We have to get a company to prepare and set it up. We will ensure that this company carries us through a period of maintenance so that our staff here at the BFA will be able to handle it themselves in the long run,” he said. 
Additionally, the long-standing football administrator called on the public to throw their full support behind the senior men, as the local football body prepared for the future.  
“We are being exposed to the best teams that the region has to offer and we need to have more of the people of Barbados supporting us. Football has so much to offer our young men and women and we really need to take it to the next level.
“We are representing them, and this can be a changing point for football in Barbados. Until we get together and try to promote football as a team, and the clubs as a whole support the BFA as their own, we are not going to get the support we need to make sure that the game here is professionalized,” the president stressed.
