Third Goal project
The artificial turf pitch opened on 31 May 2008 is one of several Goal projects aimed at improving New Caledonia's football infrastructure. On 22 October 2008, the Goal Bureau gave the go-ahead for the second part of this project, the construction of a technical centre with office space for the association headquarters. This third project involves the addition of an outside futsal facility to the technical centre, complete with artificial turf and grass pitches. This will mean that the centre can be used year round for all types of football and by all age groups.
