Category: | 0 Replies


The Barbados Football Association is pleased to announce it's headquarters in Wildey will be the host of the U17 age group matches in the up coming National Youth Cup 2017. The venue will also host the finals of the U13, 15 and 17's in the said tournament.

History
The Garfield Sobers Complex is a dessignated area for sporting development and infrastructure by the government of Barbados. The complex is home to other sporting homes such as the Aquatic Centre, Hockey field, Barbados Tennis Centre, The Barbados Olympic Association and the iconic Gymnasium. In 2012 the first football specific artificial turf was laid in this sporting complex as a home for football in the island.

Born from the FIFA Goal Project, the site was earmarked to have a football field as Stage 1. Further development in stages 2 and 3 would result in the current structure that stands today with the Administrative Office and Changing Rooms. Furture development of the venue is to be undertaken to transform the location into a fully functioning football stadium which will hold more than 3,000 spectators..

Facilities
The Wildey Turf has 2 team changing rooms in the main building, 18 players showers and 1 referees shower, referees room, administrative block inclusive of a boardroom, lunch room, store room, and an administration office., A further 2 changing rooms, Media rooms and equipment storage were later formed using retrofitted containers. Male, Femmales and a handicap bathroom are also included in the layout.

The BFA Turf hosted the successful staging of the Guardian Group Youth Football Tournament earlier this year and will do the same again for the National Youth Cup.
