SDF spends $252 million on sports infrastructure
The Sports Development Foundation (SDF) reports that it spent more than $250 million on sports infrastructure projects in 2015.
That included work on 25 high-school sporting facilities across the country.
The work included construction or rehabilitation of fences for multipurpose courts at 10 locations, including five high schools; rehabilitation of playing fields; and the High Schools Sports Infrastructure Improvement Programme, which carried a price tag of $20.825 million.
The schools selected were chosen based on their performance at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association Boys & Girls' Athletic Championships.
Among the better-known schools which benefited were Holmwood Technical, Wolmer's Boys' School, St Jago High School, Munro College, Kingston College, Vere Technical and Calabar High School.
