FIFA course to focus on pitch upkeep
A MUCH-NEEDED two-day seminar on football pitch maintenance will begin today at the Radisson Aquatica.

About 60 representatives from the 30 member associations of the Caribbean Football Union are scheduled to participate.

“One of the problems in the region has been the proper preparation and maintenance of turfs,” he said.
