Panaji: The Goa Government has leased the Holy Trinity ground at Benaulim, admeasuring nearly 20,000 square metres to Churchill Brothers Club for a period of 33 years on a payment of an annual rent of Rs 20,000.

Stating this, Urban Development Minister and AIFF Vice
President Joaquim Alemao said that the Club will develop the
ground into a full-fledged stadium with all modern facilities.

"We have already approached a Delhi based firm for laying
turf," said Alemao, adding that it will be the home stadium
for all their I-league home matches.

"The AFC team who is on a visit to Goa visited the club
yesterday and that they have provided them with all details as
sought under the club licencing criteria and that the
Malaysian team had appreciated the presentations made by the
club officials which were backed with documentary proof,"
Alemao added.
