The Dominica Football Association (DFA) and Prabha International Inc have signed a three-month contract which will see the lighting of the Stock Farm Sports Complex becoming a reality. The signing took place on Saturday November 24, 2018 at the DFA football House in Bath Estate.

Glen Etienne, President of the DFA, expressed delight at the signing, saying that it will greatly help the DFA in continuing its football programmes and the training of the men’s and women’s teams.

This is part of the FIFA Goal Project for Dominica. It is anticipated that work will commence on 3rd December 2018 for both the lighting and grassing of the Stock Farm Complex. The project is expected to be completed by March of 2019.

However the project began in 2012 and experienced a long delay. After a two-year delay, work recommenced in 2014 on the FIFA-funded Goal 2 project being undertaken by the Dominica Football Association.

The Goal 2 project involves the construction of a foot playing facility of international standard at Stockfarm.

President of the Dominica Football Association (DFA) Glen Etienne had said “I must confess that the long wait was quite frustrating and disturbing for all those associated with this project, more so for us at the Dominica Football Association. Nonetheless, we are now seeing light at the end of the tunnel and that augurs very well for the future of football in this country. For that we are most elated.”
