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. Read more

An England-based footballer will make his debut for Barbados when the “Bajan Rockets” take on Northern Ireland in a friendly football international at the National Stadium tomorrow at 7 p.m.
Mark Boyce, 23-year-old defender from Yeovil Town, who played for Norwich’s reserves in 1999 after serving as a trainee with Watford, is the latest player of Barbadian parentage to be recruited for national duty.
Boyce, an overlapping right wing back, has had a number of brief semi-professional attachments with different clubs in England.
He had a stint with Chesham United between 2001 and 2002 before moving to Hayes, Kingstonian and Maidenhead in the Conference Leagues.
After impressing Yeovil’s coaches and scouts during the summer of 2003, Boyce signed for the English Division 3 side last October on a non-contract basis.
He was recommended to the Barbados Football Association by another footballer of Barbadian parentage, Fabian Forde, who played with him at Watford. His father, Orville “Bill” Boyce, was from Boscobelle, St Peter, before he moved to England 40 years ago. Read more
