FIFA Funding

A pleased President Bickerton, speaking at at the signing ceremony stating he was very happy that the project was on its way again.

Mr Bickerton confirmed that the BVIFA has indeed been funded by FIFA for this next stage of the project which is the completion of the drainage on the northern end of the field and the putting up of the retaining wall on the southern end of the field.

“These are very important to the project as a whole because once this has been completed the BVIFA can then put in the athletics track.” said Bickerton.

Mr Bickerton also disclosed that FIFA have also approved the next stage of the project which is the foundation of the grandstand "so with some of the funding already in place the BVIFA would be able to get that stage of the project on the way very probably after the end of the hurricane season, as it is a much larger project."
