SKNFA Launches ‘Football Is Back’ Campaign To Prepare Season Under New Regulations

St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association (SKNFA) General Secretary, Stanley Jacobs is anticipating that the New State of Emergency regulations will allow for competitive football; hence it is important for teams to be ready.

According to SKNFA The “Football is Back” campaign will feature a series of practice matches in the lead up to an eventual return of competitive football.

Jacobs, at a ceremony on Sunday, said that during their last check only seven of the 21 member clubs have been actively training, which, he noted is still too few for football to restart.

With COVID-19 regulations in effect, football officials now require new equipment before they can resume competitions.

Thermometers, hand sanitizers, water bottles, and new footballs, are required for training during competitive matches.

On the other hand, SKNFA Technical Director Jeffrey Hazel said that the SKNFA has to request permission from the Ministry of Sports to host these games.

That request then has to be submitted by the Ministry to the COVID-19 Task Force for approval.

We making those applications so we can have those practice matches…we know a number of teams have started practices so we are starting with those teams,” said Hazel.

Some 15 of the 21 member clubs were represented at the function where the presentation took place. The SKNFA promises to release more information in the coming days on the series of practice matches for this month.
