A project currently underway to upgrade the lights at the football stadium in Warner Park is expected to be completed in time for the World Cup qualifying game on 11th June between St. Kitts and Nevis and El Salvador. This pronouncement was made by Minister of Sports Shawn Richard, who spoke exclusively with the St. Kitts-Nevis Observer. “The lighting project has commenced and the contractors have already begun digging the trenches so that the cables can be laid.” Minister Richards explained that the project should be completed in time for the game, where the home outfit will be hosting a strong Latin America team. “The preliminary work which can be undertaken in the interim is being done. We are expecting to have the lighting in place and commissioned by the 11th June, which is the date for that qualifier between St. Kitts and Nevis and El Salvador.” The lights at the stadium are being replaced after they did not reach the standard set out by FIFA the governing body for football globally. The project will cost the government some EC$1.7M with the Taiwanese making a sizable donation to the Government to the tune of over EC$860,000.
