Construction Work still ongoing at Arnos Vale Playing Field

The final touches of the Arnos Vale Playing Field is underway as St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) prepares to host a few of the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 cricket World Cup cricket matches starting next week Thursday June 13.

SVG is slated to host a one day-game on Thursday June 13 and two night games on Friday June 14 and Sunday June 16 at the newly renovated Arnos Vale Playing Field.

Prime minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves at a press conference on Monday June 3 mentioned the importance of testing the facilities before hosting its first game.
“It is important that we have a practice game, so that we can test the systems with the practice game in the night… they[Local Organising Committee] would organise that.”

Currently, the construction crew are at the stadium working tirelessly to ensure that all is in readiness ahead of the first game, however there’s one hurdle to overcome.

DIPCON engineering, as of Tuesday June 4, were still carrying out work on a dirt road from the decommissioned ET Joshua tarmac leading to cricket venue.

At the conference, Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves explained that the road is being dug out to allow a more convenient passage for patrons getting to the playing field from the tarmac; which would be used for parking.
