PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPORTING FACILITIES CLOSED FROM MIDNIGHT MARCH 15TH FOR ONE WEEK

Balmain, Couva, 14th March: Following consultations with the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs, the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (SporTT), will be closing all sporting facilities under its purview from midnight Sunday 15th March until Midnight Sunday 22nd March. This means that all events and training activities carded for this week is now cancelled.

This action comes as the entire country adjusts to measures that are aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The downtime would ensure that all facilities can be properly sanitised and prevent the community spread of the virus via mass gatherings. We will review the decision during the week and again at the end of the closure period.

SporTT will be in contact with the national community if this situation changes and asks that all stakeholders and facility users have patience with us during the process.
