The First Citizens Cup semi-final round, previously scheduled for Friday 20 October at the Ato Boldon Stadium (ABS), involving Point Fortin Civic versus defending champions Defence Force and seven-time winners W Connection versus Club Sando, has been regrettably postponed to 3 November due to current conditions at the Couva venue.

The First Citizens Cup final, as a result, has been shifted to November 10.

The ABS main field surface was unable to hold up beyond the quarter-final round of the NLCB sponsored Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) Elite One-Day Tournament last Wednesday due to inclement rainfall, forcing the postponement of the semi-final and final rounds of that tournament but not without damage already done to the surface.

Continued weather conditions of the past few days has resulted in a one-week closure of the Ato Boldon Stadium’s main and practice fields. 

The Trinidad and Tobago Pro League apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the shift in the First Citizens Cup semi-final and final dates.
