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.
Second Goal project
After receiving approval for its first Goal project - an artificial turf pitch - in 2004, the Bermuda Football Association has now requested additional funding to finally make its national technical centre a reality. The Goal Bureau approved this request as the association's second project on 4 February 2008 with the objective of providing the Bermudan association with excellent facilities for development projects and training sessions.
