Life's a beach for PHD Bahamas

PHD Bahamas have been working on the Nassau National Beach Soccer Arena which is a brand new, 3,500-seat, state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the city that has already been to put to good use at the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship and will be enshrined in history as it is currently hosting the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup from the 27th April to the 7th May. Constructed by PHD Bahamas and Overlay Events, the arena took less than six months to complete from start to finish and will not only help put the nation on the map but organisers also hope it can help grow the sport in the Bahamas. With its arcing, golden beaches and pristine turquoise oceans, it’s easy to see why the Bahamas represents an ideal place for the sport to grow and architect Bruce LaFleur (who is also a Bahamas Football Association Vice-President) has said: “I am very proud of the fact that every seat is ‘the best seat in the house’ and patrons can be fully engaged with what’s happening on the pitch.” “An excellent facility like this can be a catalyst for beach soccer in the region, and I appreciate more than anyone the close

relationship between sport and tourism and how a top-drawer arena can not only bring benefits for Nassau, but for the whole country and the Caribbean.” Today, Nassau’s National Beach Soccer Arena at Malcolm Park is already something the Bahamas can be extremely proud of. PHD Bahamas have been working in the region for almost 20 years, initially working on the Atlantis in Nassau when it was being constructed in 1997 and have supported the Atlantis Group in the Bahamas and Middle East ever since.
