Following the collapse of Trinidad & Tobago's initial project plan for administrative reasons, a second proposal was approved on 16 July 2004 for a national futsal centre in Macoya, Tunapuna. After being built in record time, the centre comprising two pitches, dressing rooms and stands for 800 spectators was officially opened by FIFA vice-president Jack A. Warner. Goal, a special FIFA fund for futsal and CONCACAF all contributed to the construction costs. With this new centre, the association hopes to boost futsal at regional level. The centre, which will be open all year round, is an important step in the right direction.
