President of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Wayne Forde said he is pleased with the current work being conducted for phase one of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) Forward Project.
Forde during a visit Monday to the Providence Community Centre, the site for the GFF’s National Training Centre, declared: “The Executive Committee is pleased with the works underway at the GFF National Training Centre.”
The first phase of the long overdue project will see the construction of the artificial turf by Netherlands-based Greenfields, a manufacturer of artificial turf. Other aspects of the facility will include dormitories, kitchen services, a gym and a pool.
Local entity Nabi and Sons Limited was sub-contracted by the Dutch company to complete the sub-base work, before the laying of the synthetic surface.
The Dutch corporation was officially selected by FIFA to build the then Goal Project following the conclusion of the International Tender Process.
Greenfields edged out fellow Netherlands firm Edel Grass after the bidding process was narrowed down to two companies.
Founded in 2003, the company has installed more than 2500 pitches across the globe.
They have also received the FIFA Preferred Producer for Football Title as well as similar accolades from the International Hockey Federation and the International Rugby Board.
