Mannie Ramjohn Stadium – stadium description
Built in Marabella on northern outskirts of San Fernando, this ground was opened in 2000. Its name from the very start honours Mannie Ramjohn, first gold medal winner for Trinidad and Tobago ever (though not during Olympics – in world championships).
But despite the ground having a running track that would fit patron’s name (Ramjohn was a runner), this is primarily a football venue with even four clubs using it simultaneously. Not to mention the U17 World Cup games in 2001 and 2010.
Just 13 km north stands the Ato Boldon Stadium, built along the very same design, differing only in seat colours. Copying the design was one of means to keep costs as low as possible.
