ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The British Virgin Islands Football Association (BVIFA) Competitions Committee has formalised the Calendar for 2016, with a series of Knockout Cup Tournaments slated for both the A.O. Shirley Ground and the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground.

The new season actually begins with the Men’s National team facing two games in the first round of the Scotiabank Caribbean Cup, firstly an away fixture against Martinique on March 22, 2016 and then a home tie with Dominica on March 26, 2016 at the A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground in Road Town.

Domestic football will then take centre stage with the Terry Evans Cup for Men and Women’s teams being staged from April 17 and then a one day ‘Nations Cup’, held on Virgin Gorda as part of the Whit Monday Holiday celebrations.

Wendoll Williams Cup starts in June

The Wendoll Williams Cup will then be up for grabs with matches for Men and Women held on both Tortola and Virgin Gorda, starting on June 5, 2016 and with a Final scheduled for July 3, 2016.

According to Committee Chair Aubrey Liburd, the spring and early summer will be a fiesta of football for everyone. “As we look to build back up the sports profile ahead of being able to utilise the new venue in East End, it was important to plan a comprehensive season that will satisfy demand and the needs of our member clubs. Apart from the Knockout Cups, we are also supporting a Street Soccer initative by Road Town Wholesale and will also be hosting a Beach Soccer Tournament as well as a CONCACAF Women’s Day Celebration in late May,” he commented.

Mr Liburd also reminded all Clubs that they must have paid up all BVIFA affiliation fees and submitted Rosters to be considered eligible to participate in what will be a fascinating new season.

“Teams have until the close of business on Monday March 21, 2016 to become completely compliant with the FA’s Constitution and Rules,” confirmed Liburd. “We have already extended the time frame, but now all teams must take note of the new deadline and submit their payment and relevant documents to the General Secretary of the FA.”

Any Club requiring further information on the requirements of compliance can also contact the FA Office on 494 5655.
