Football on the Turks & Caicos Islands
The people of this small Caribbean nation adore football, so the national association can count upon their support and goodwill. Although the national team has not enjoyed much success on the international stage, work continues apace on developing football in the country. Work concentrates on youth football, as people are aware that footballing success is always based on youth development work.
Second Goal project
The objective of the second project in the Turks and Caicos Islands was to complete its "house of football" by integrating association headquarters into the national training centre that was built in the country's first Goal project. The Goal Bureau backed this plan at its meeting on 15 March 2006 as well as a proposal to construct a secure fence enclosing the entire complex. The association believes that the completed facilities will make it possible to promote the game more actively, particularly at youth level, through courses and training camps. In addition to funding from Goal, the project is being part-financed by the FIFA Financial Assistance Programme and funds from the association's own coffers.
