Description: Hasely Crawford Stadium
The country’s largest venue was opened back in 1982 as simply the National Stadium, central part of an extensive sports complex. As this was soon after Trinidad and Tobago became an independent country, this venue also had a symbolic value. Over the years it became home to most important sports events in T&T, getting a facelift ahead of 2001 U17 World Cup.
Just 5 years before the event it also received a new name, honouring the country’s first Olympic gold medalist, sprinter Hasely Crawford.
