Description

Arima Municipal Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Arima, the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It used to be the permanent home ground of Arima Fire F.C., which later moved to the Larry Gomes Stadium, also located in Arima, which was built specially for the U-17 World Cup that took place in 2001.

In 1974, a new track was constructed at the Arima Municipal Stadium for athletics. It was suitable for use at any weather conditions. The stadium became a constant venue for Athletics Championships until 1981. However, in 1982, the Championships were transferred to the Crawford Stadium. Since that time, nearly all of the athletics championships were held there, except for 1989, when Arima Municipal Stadium was chosen for them for the last time and a couple of other times when other stadiums were used.

Today, the stadium is not used for big games. The Municipal Corporations of Arima had certain concerns regarding the condition of the stadium. It required a range of renovations and repairs to be done. Particular, electrical works were needed to be conducted. That is why The Design Department was assigned to be responsible for completing all the needed works to improve the condition of the stadium.
