 The Barbados Football Association (BFA) plans to construct a new grass field on the eastern side of the Wildey Turf.

The project will cost an estimated $150 000 and will be fully funded by the world governing body, FIFA.

BFA president Randy Harris made the disclosure during a telephone interview with NATION SPORT last week in the lead-up to the annual general meeting, which was held on Sunday evening at the Wildey Gymnasium. (AGB)
