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 Neighbourhood 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.
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.
This is Guyana’s second attempt at a Goal Project which is funded by FIFA under their development initiatives.
