The National Stadium, which hosted a successful boys’ and girls’ high school championships – CHAMPS 2022 – last week, has been approved to entertain 70 percent of the venue’s capacity and the organizers are hoping to capitalize on this opportunity.
There will also be special packages for those traveling with large groups.
“We had to make some adjustments since the vaccine mandate has been removed. And certainly, we wanted to maximize the opportunity to get the approved 70 percent of capacity,” Deputy Chairman for the Carifta Games Local Organising Committee (LOC), Ludlow Watts explained.
“That means after allocations to special groups including our sponsors, we will have approximately 2,500 Grandstand Tickets for sale. We aim to make the process as comfortable as possible.”
The list of partners for this year’s CARIFTA Games are, Digicel, Massy Distribution, Malta, Wisynco (WATA & Powerade); Recycling Partners of Jamaica, KONNEXX Services, plus the University Hospital of the West Indies, JPSCo, Ministry of Sport and the Sports Development Foundation.
