Salgaocar Slams GFA For Forcing Them To Play At Goa Velha Field Ground

Salgaocar FC have slammed the Goa Football Association for forcing them to play their First Division League match at the 'unplayable' Goa Velha Field Ground. 

Salgaocar FC were irked at the condition of the Goa Velha Ground which lacked basic amenities such as dressing rooms and toilets. Salgaocar were initially scheduled to play their away match against Goa Velha SC on 29th April but the match had to be postponed as Salgaocar refused to play.

Apart from the basic facilities, Salgaocar were vexed at the dusty and uneven condition of the ground, which had visible tyre marks all over it. 



Salgaocar were also vocal about the misalignment of the goal posts, highlighting the lack of professionalism. They also raised the issue of stray animals like cows and dogs infiltrating the ground on a regular basis, often during football matches.
