ST GEORGE’S, Grenada – There are unconfirmed reports that the Grenada Football Association (GFA) is awaiting a decision about the availability of the National Stadium for a practice session for the World Cup squad preparing for next week’s clash against the United States Virgin Islands.

GFA officials last week confirmed comments by opposition senator Arley Gill that the national team is unable to prepare on the grounds of the National Stadium at Queen’s Park.

The Spice Boyz played to a 1-1 draw against Barbados in an international friendly at the Tanteen Recreation Ground on Saturday.

However, with a week before a Group 3 First Round single elimination game between Grenada and the USVI, there is no official word on whether the team will be allowed to hold a session on the ground before match-day.

There appears to be a dispute between the Ministry of Sports and the Stadium Authority over the use of the stadium and the GFA continues to wait for the green-light.

Attempts to reach officials of the GFA, the Ministry of Sports and the Stadium Authority on Tuesday proved futile but a source indicated that a cricket match involving a county team from the United Kingdom appears to be the contentious issue.

National team coach Norris ‘Bouza’ Wilson said that the team is yet to acclimatise to the stadium.
