F.F.B. Field Ready for Play

As we said earlier, the first international game for the national ‘A’ selection team will be played on March twenty-fifth at the FIFA sanctioned national field on the F.F.B. compound in Belmopan. Last year, the pitch was not up to standards and in fact, the Belmopan Bandits Football Club, which won the Premier League of Belize, was disqualified from taking part in the Championships League due to the very bad condition of the pitch. But today, the brown patches and visibly shoddy pitch has transformed in a healthy lush green playing field. According to Vicente, the federation spent over a hundred thousand dollars more than what was budgeted to improve the field under a new contractor.

Ruperto Vicente, President, F.F.B.

“Our field was inspected on the twenty-sixth and twenty0seven of January of this year and so our field, our stadium and the facility in itself have passed the test. So we are ready to play football. I don’t even have to speak on this today; you are here so you are able to take a look at the pitch. It is a beautiful pitch; it’s an international pitch. Yes we’ve spent quite an amount of money on it to get it to where it is now. And I want to applaud Mister Anthony Chanona for all the work that he has put into this field.”
