Workers cleaning up at the Thelbert Carti Stadium in French Quarter.


MARIGOT–Since early July, teams of workers have been cleaning up the Thelbert Carti Stadium in French Quarter and removing all the artificial turf from the field. Work to secure the premises and repair the perimeter fence should be completed by the end of August 2018.

Hurricane Irma caused extreme damage to the stadium, ripping up the artificial grass on the field, destroying the roof of the stadium, the bleachers and tearing down the fences. The infrastructure which was brand new 11 months before Irma must be completely rebuilt. However, this year just 500,000 euros is budgeted for rehabilitation of the football field.

Demolition work on the bleachers and the roof will be undertaken later and should be completed by the end of 2018. However, primary and secondary schools in Quartier d’ Orléans will be able to use the sports ground (plateau sportif) that includes one basketball court and a volleyball court.

Thelbert Carti Stadium was inaugurated in October 2016 after four months of work that consisted of a complete facelift of the sports infrastructure with state-of-the-art equipment, including the latest generation synthetic surface for the football field.
