LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — The National Sports Authority of the Bahamas have sealed a strategic consulting and operations agreement with AEG Facilities that will see AEG provide operational, management and marketing services for the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium and Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre in the capital city of Nassau.
“We are very excited to work with the National Sports Authority and this amazing collection of venues,” said Chuck Steedman, Chief Operating Officer, AEG Facilities. “Thomas Robinson Stadium has proven itself to be a world-class venue hosting the last two IAAF World Relay Championships as well as FIFA World Cup qualifying matches. We are looking forward to expanding the content base to provide jobs, tourism and cultural opportunities to benefit Bahamian youth,” Steedman continued.
The 30,000-capacity Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium was constructed in 2012 and currently provides a home for the Bahamas’ national soccer team and the Bahamas national track and field teams as well as many other special events such as the NCAA-sanctioned Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl, international football matches and the IAAF World Relay Championships.
The Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre consists of several additional athletics venues, including a warm-up track complex, tennis stadium, natatorium, golf course, a gymnasium and opening soon a national baseball stadium. – Staff Writers
