Back to Stadium
THE Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships (BSSAC) will be staged at the National Stadium for sure.
This was confirmed by BSSAC chairman Vasco Dash after a site visit yesterday that included members from the National Sports Council, headed by interim chief executive officer Jerry Blenman, officials of the Royal Barbados Police Force, the Barbados Defence Force and other technocrats.
The purpose of the visit, made during the St George Primary School sports, was to review infrastructural arrangements for the championships which will be tweaked this year to adjust to the lower level of seating accommodation since the stands remain closed to the public because of security concerns.
When new arrangements are put in place, it is estimated that a minimum of 2 000 spectators will be accommodated with temporary seating on the eastern and western ends of the Stadium.
