Bermuda National Sports Center

 
The National Sports Center in Bermuda is a multi-sport stadium located in Devonshire parish. Earlier the sports center was known as the Bermuda National Stadium before the major upgrades started. The first international soccer in Bermuda was played here in 2001. The center is also the venue for popular World Rugby Classic and many other sporting events. It has a seating capacity of 7000. There is a new Olympic size swimming pool being built in the center. 
 
The National Sports Center is now the main venue for all the track & field sports in the island as well as cricket, soccer, rugby, swimming and many other special events including concerts. Over the years Bermuda Music Festival had been held at this sports center. 
 
 
 
Millions of tax payers dollars has been pumped in towards the upgrades of the sports center. Unfortunately, some of it still remains work in progress. The sport center is spread across several acres of land area and stretches from Parsons Road to Devonshire Recreation Club towards north.
