Football is the number one sport but its development has been jeopardised by a lack of sporting infrastructure and a dearth of football facilities in particular. However, thanks to the funding provided by FIFA through its Financial Assistance Programme, the association has been able to establish a permanent administration, which will oversee football on all of the islands.

On 22 September 2004, the Goal Bureau approved plans to build a national technical centre on the main island of the British Virgin Islands. The association had faced problems finding an appropriate location because of a shortage of flat land on Tortola, where the association’s headquarters are situated. Eventually, a plot was found on government-owned property. The new project will undoubtedly have a positive impact on football on the islands.
