Basseterre,St.Kitts August 24 2020 (SKNVIBES)
The St., Kitts and Nevis Football Association (SKNFA) on Sunday recently launched its Football is Back Campaign at a ceremony at Jamrock Restaurant in Frigate Bay. The association presented its member clubs with brand new equipment needed in becoming COVID ready to resume football such as: thermometers, hand sanitizers, water bottles and new footballs to be used in training. Each team received enough water bottles to give each player a bottle as the COVID guidelines prohibit the sharing of water bottles among players.
“In order to restart football you must have football equipment. One of the pieces of equipment teams have been asking for are balls. Because they have been inactive from March of 2020, balls have been sitting idle, they are soft, they are no good. So we sought to bring some relief to the situation by providing you with enough balls that at least you can begin some practice sessions,” Jacobs explained. The SKNFA General Secretary added that at their last check only seven of the 21 member clubs have been actively training, which, he noted is still too low for football to restart.
