The sport of boxing has finally gotten its own home. On Friday Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs Darryl Smith cut the ribbon to formally open the new office of the Trinidad Boxing Board of Control (TBBC), at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo. Present at the ribbon cutting ceremony were officials from the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs (MSYA) and Sport Company of T&T.

The Ministry is very happy to be able to provide a new home for the TBBC. This will assist in reducing expenditure, as the Board will no longer have an overhead cost for rent?.

The board moved from its office in the compound of Alicia Guest House in St Ann’s to the Stadium last week.

The relocation follows the removal of the SporTT and the Ministry of Sports from the capital city of Port of Spain to the National Cycling Centre (NCC) in Balmain Couva and at #2 Elizabeth Street, St Clair respectively.

Smith noted, ?These relocations will save millions of dollars in annual rent and the Ministry is keen to realise any savings which can go back to the athletes and maintenance of our facilities.?
