Football in Bermuda
Football, cricket and athletics are the most popular sports in Bermuda. Although the national team has not yet celebrated any real success, two players, Clyde Best (West Ham United) and Shaun Goater (Manchester City), have played in the English top flight. By securing moves to England, they also brought great honour to the Caribbean island state.
The first Goal Project
After lengthy evaluation, the Bermuda Football Association submitted plans to lay an artificial turf pitch, which gained approval from the Goal Bureau on 22 September 2004. The new pitch will supplement existing facilities, allowing the association to run its development programmes all-year round and providing a valuable training resource for national teams whenever required. Construction work is due to begin early next year and is expected to last for four months.
