The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT) has waived over $8 million in fees for the year so far.
SporTT says they did so to provide an enabling environment for sporting activities, disciplines and their National Governing Bodies (NGBs).
Football, track & field, cricket, hockey, swimming and volleyball spaces were all provided at no cost to users. They are qualified as facilities rental, office space, storage rental and sports sciences services used such as physio-therapy, gym use, evaluation and testing.
Explaining that this practice is normal for SporTT, they revealed that since their start in 2004, they’ve given over $394 million in subventions.
Chief Executive Officer for SporTT, Jason Williams says these figures, “represent the commitment to sport and the development of facilities for play. It also means that the over ten thousand athletes represented by the fifteen NGBs have had a place to practice and showcase their skill to the national community and the world”.
