COVID-19 / Football: New pitch at Várzea Stadium is already endorsed by FIFA – Federation

Praia, Apr 24 (Inforpress) – The project to change the pitch of the Várzea Stadium “is already endorsed” by FIFA, but at this moment conditioned to the virus of COVID-19, which prevents specialists to travel to the country for inspection work.

According to the Infropress’ investigation in the Cabo Verdean Football Federation (FCF), an institution has been at the forefront of this project, the COVID-19 pandemic lead the institution that oversees football in the archipelago to suspend virtually all ongoing projects.

“The new pitch for the Várzea Stadium is guaranteed without any problems,” said Mário Semedo, who has been in constant contact with FIFA on this issue.

FCF works with FIFA to change the pitch of the Várzea Stadium, since the football community has long been calling for the improvement of the synthetic carpet at this emblematic stadium, since the existing one “is becoming impractical, putting the physical integrity of the athletes in cause”.
