Share post:

IT IS THE KIND OF NEWS the local hockey fraternity has been longing to hear.

The Wildey AstroTurf may soon be restored.

President of the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) Steve Stoute said he was optimistic about a new artificial surface following the Pan American Sport Organisation’s (PASO) general meeting in Miami last weekend.

Stoute said he met with PASO officials and members of the Pan American Hockey Federation and discussions were positive.

“It looks very positive and should go ahead in the not too distant future.”

He revealed in an exclusive interview with MIDWEEK SPORT that as a result of the talks, the turf was slated to be shipped to Barbados in a few weeks from Argentina and PASO would also provide financial assistance for the restoration project.
