General Secretary Stanley Jacobs of the St Kitts-Nevis Football Association said today that the St. Kitts and Nevis vs. Turks and Caicos Islands encounter on 23rd March would kick-start the nation’s World Cup campaign. But Jacobs disclosed that playing surface at the stadium is not at the level that the association would have like it to be, but it is playable.
On that note, he pointed out that the Premier Division matches would make a return to Warner Park, after several weeks of matches played at other venues around the island.
“Well it is playable… it is not perfect, but we can still use,” Jacobs said.
Concerns were raised over where the World Cup qualifiers would be staged, since local matches were staged at several other venues that are not up to international standards.
Meanwhile, when it comes to the Monday night’s qualifier game, a near capacity crowd is expected, but according to Jacobs, the sale of tickets are not moving at a fast pace, since, Kittitians and Nevisians have a tendency of making purchases at the last moment.
