Hasely Crawford Stadium back for sporting use

Newsday :: 03.03.2017

THE HASELY Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo, which served as the venue for a number of major events during the Carnival period, is ready for use by the sporting fraternity.

The massive infrastructure required for events such as Machel Monday on February 20 and Soca Monarch finals held on February 24 took some time to dismantle, but the team at the Stadium has been able to pull off the feat ahead of schedule, according to a Ministry of Sport press release.

Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith, said the task was a monumental one that he was confident the team could handle.

Smith said, "We are always mindful of the need to restore the facility, especially the playing surfaces to their original state after the Carnival season, which is a busy one for all involved. I therefore commend the stadium management and staff for the quick turnaround time, making the track and field (area) ready by Ash Wednesday, so that the national football team can continue training on their home ground ahead of the World Cup qualifier." The national men's football team face Panama on March 24 and Mexico on March 28 in World Cup qualifying. Both matches will be played at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT) is responsible for the management and maintenance of the Hasely Crawford Stadium which serves as a hub for a variety of activities, both sporting and cultural.
