One of the great debates that is taking place with the selection of Panama it is where to move the premises in order to have a good playing field. There was talk from going to play at the Rod Carew National Stadium to going to another country to play the remaining home games of the Concacaf Qualifiers.
The big problem is the work being done in the Rommel Fernandez. The Director of Pandeportes, Eduardo Cerda, spoke with the press and told the project that they have planned to improve it. In addition, he explained what are the problems that end up delaying the end of the work.
“At the end of the road we are going to do something good and modern, with a hybrid pitch that few countries in Latin America have. We have to make a survey of specifications, present it to different levels of the Government. Sometimes people get covid-19 and the institutions close it for 15 days and things like this have delayed this “, said the manager.
When will the Rommel Fernández be ready?
