Bacolet Stadium Tobago

Bacolet Stadium - Tobago

Trinidad and Tobago is to be the host of the FIFA under 17 World Youth Football Championships in 2001.  The Government is committed to developing four new stadiums in Union Park, Couva, Malabar and Bacolet in Tobago.  These new facilities will complement several existing stadiums to provide the venues for the tournament.

Yorke Structures Limited fabricated and erected the structural steelwork for the main grandstand in Bacolet, Tobago.  This new grandstand will ultimately provide covered seated accommodation for over 4,000 fans.  The structural steelwork was shipped from Trinidad over one weekend by chartering the MV Panorama ferry ship which transported in excess of thirty trailers, cranes, equipment and manpower to Tobago.  The structure, which contains in excess of 500 tons of steel was then erected in three weeks and included an 80 foot span cantilever roof assembly.
