The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has officially given the green light for the commencement of work on the International Football Federation (FIFA) funded Goal-Project to be situated at the Providence Community Centre ground.
According to an official release from the GFF “The Executive Committee of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) met recently and unanimously approved for the ‘go-ahead’ for commencement of work on Guyana’s FIFA Goal Project.
“Under the Normalisation Committee, the GFF and the Eccles/Ramsburg Neighborhood Democratic Council (NDC) signed an agreement that saw the local governing body for the sport of football get a 30-year lease for the 8.5 acres Providence Community Centre ground,” the release added.
“President of the GFF Wayne Forde highlighted the need for the GFF to have a home and one which will aid in the development of the game. The project will now be sent out for International Tender by FIFA and once the World body identifies a supplier of the artificial turf, work is expected to begin and a timeline of five months of completion has been set from commencement,” the release stated.
“This is Guyana’s second attempt at a Goal Project which is funded by FIFA under their development initiatives,” the release ended.
