If all goes according to plan, the 2013 International Hockey Festival can be played on a brand new turf at the National Hockey Centre in Wildey.
The annual festival is scheduled for August, as usual, but Barbados Hockey Federation (BHF) president David Rouse remains hopeful that the facility can be ready by the end of July.
Last year Leandro Negre, president of the International Hockey Federation (FIH), and Antonio Von Ondarza, president of the Pan American Hockey Federation, came to Barbados and held discussions with officials from the Ministry of Sports, the National Sports Council and the Barbados Olympic Association to find ways to resolve the ongoing problem.
After those meetings, a tentative completion date was set for February this year.
