The new national training centre in Croix-des-Bouquets, a suburb of the capital city of Port-au-Prince, was opened on 25 April 2002. The guests of honour included FIFA vice-president, Jack Warner, and Haiti
's Minister for Sport, Herman Nau. The new training centre boasts a 300-person auditorium, 16 air-conditioned rooms to accommodate 32 persons, and a new pitch. The complex will allow the national association to implement a number of new projects and provide a base for the various national teams to prepare for international matches. By donating land for the training centre, the Haiti
Government has also contributed to the successful construction of the centre. «In the past, we have lost a lot of talented players because we did not have the facilities that this new complex boasts,» explained the Minister for Sport in his address. However, he went on to say that he was sure that this would now change and boost football in his country.
