Description: Ato Boldon Stadium

Located half way between Trinidad’s largest cities, this stadium was built ahead of 2001 U17 World Cup, first such event in T&T’s history. Traditionally for the Caribbean, it’s not football-only in terms of use.

Athletics track around the pitch fits nicely to the name, celebrating 4-time medalist in sprint Ato Boldon. As the ground was built just 4 years after his last medal, this seems very fitting.

The ground has four grandstands, but three of them are along one side – central one dominating with size and roof with two others on the sides. On the opposite lies the largest one in terms of capacity.

Due to demand for sports stadia and restricted budget, the very same design was used just several miles south, at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium.
