0

The 2022-2023 Concacaf Nations League match between Guyana and Montserrat will be held at Wildey Turf Stadium, Wildey, Barbados, on March 28.

The Guyana Football Federation (GFF) has confirmed that the League B, Group B Match #99 will kick-off at 19:00h (7 p.m.) local time (19:00 ET).

“The decision to move the match from Guyana to Barbados was approved by Concacaf following a thorough review of facilities here, including the National Track and Field Centre, Leonora,” the GFF said in a statement on Friday afternoon.

“The GFF General Secretary Ian Alves in a letter to Concacaf explained that the pitch at Leonora is in poor condition “inclusive of sparse grass coverage in many areas,” the GFF release outlined.

Alves’ letter further stated: “The stadium authorities have recently treated the grass for infestation, which makes it possibly injurious to the health of players. This situation would have to be monitored and evaluated in a few weeks to ascertain the reduction or total removal of this threat.”

Guyana is second on the table behind Haiti in the 2022-2023 Concacaf Nations League. The Golden Jaguars will also play Bermuda on March 24 which the Bermuda Football Association has expressed its willingness to host, Alves confirmed.

In early January, the Senior Men’s National Team resumed training with Head Coach Jamaal Shabazz at the GFF’s National Training Centre, Providence, East Bank Demerara. Guyana must win both matches to qualify for the Gold Cup.
