Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
March 27, 2008 (SKNIS)
The sporting facilities being constructed by the Ministry of Sports around the island will raise the chances of St. Kitts and Nevis being successful in the sports tourism sub-sector.
This is the firm belief of Donald Lockerbie, President of OLYMPVS INTERNATIONAL LLC – a worldwide sports facility and operations consulting firm, based in North Carolina (USA), Barbados and Switzerland.
Lockerbie, who served as Venue Development Director for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, is highly respected in international circles and is considered to be the pre-eminent planner of many of the United States’ most acclaimed football and track and field facilities.
He became familiar with St. Kitts and Nevis during his CWC duties, as the refurbished Warner Park served as the venue for first round matches for four teams including world champions Australia as well South Africa. Mr. Lockerbie visited Saint Kitts and Nevis last week and attended the opening of the 37th CARIFTA Games.
