The Cayman Islands government has initiated a tender process for a contractor to supply and install a new scoreboard for the stadium at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

The process opened on 21 Oct. and is scheduled to close on 8 Nov. Questions from potential bidders are due by 1 Nov.

The scoreboard will be placed at the north end of the stadium.

Alfredo Whittaker, the president of the Cayman Islands Football Association, said that he believed the scoreboard would cost somewhere in the neighbourhood of $50,000.

The board would have the ability to show video replays. “That would enhance not only the football experience but all other sports,” he said.

Cayman’s national team will next play at the stadium on 16 Nov. against the US Virgin Islands in a Nations League Group C competition. The US and Cuba are scheduled to play a Nations League Group A game at Truman Bodden on 19 Nov. as a result of stadium repair in Cuba.
