BARBADOS - football

Monday 03, May-2004

by PHILIP SPOONER in Grenada

Ronald Jones: BFA gets go ahead for smaller project. The Barbados Football Association (BFA) has been given the green light to proceed with its controversial stadium project at Wildey, St Michael.

This is according to BFA president Ronald Jones, who yesterday told the DAILY NATION that the Town and Country Planning Department had given them the go-ahead, but the project had to be scaled down.

There will be a training facility, playing field, office space to meet international standards, but there won’t be 7 000 seats and no huge floodlights.

What this means is that the national football teams at all age levels will be able to use the facility, but major matches will still be played at the National Stadium.

“We have been granted permission, but it won’t be at the scale or size we envisaged. Bearing in mind the resources we have, we will be able to advance our project,” Jones said.

Jones, an Opposition Member of Parliament, was speaking during yesterday’s massive launch of the US$1 million Digicel Caribbean Cup at Queen’s Park Stadium, shortly after the CONCACAF general congress.

“This is Phase 1 of the FIFA Goal Project. We went for our first phase in a big way, but we have had to scale down. But what is needed is a full-sized match facility. We will have to train on a full field, but our matches will be on a smaller field,” he said.

The proposal to put the project in Wildey created a huge outcry from nearby residents who feared that the presence of a large football facility with massive lighting and big noisy crowds would disrupt the peaceful environment and lower property value.
