New multi-sports field Construction launched in Cotes-de-Fer

The first stone for the construction of a multi-sport facility at Côtes-de-Fer was laid Friday by René Jean Roosevelt the outgoing minister for Youth, Sports and Civic Action.


The new sports field to be developed will accommodate Basketball, handball and Volleyball.

The launch at Côtes-de-Fer comes at a time when the ministry continues with the establishment of a network of sports facilities in the territory. The Ministry is out to promote youth involvement in sports and help in the physical, spiritual and mental growth of the country's young generation.

The new facility will include a 90 square- meter podium to be used for social and cultural activities. There will be bleachers of a 600 person capacity and 100 square-meter locker rooms. The playing surface is planned to be half foot in thickness.

The constructors will set apart a fully vanished recreation area for children. The compound will be surrounded by a security perimeter fence 2 meters high.

The ministry has constructed a network of 5 new sports facilities in less than 12 months. Continuing sports centre constructions total to twenty and the ministry is exploring new sites to expand the network to all the regions. The project is aimed at improving the lives of the youth.

The launch was done in the presence of highly ranked dignitaries.

UNICOSA construction firm will build the new field in less than two months.
