In a little over 24 hours Bermuda will make history as it steps onto the pitch to battle Haiti in the Concacaf Gold Cup.

Today [June 15] will be full of official activities as part of Media Day for all the teams.

At 3.00pm [6.00pm Bermuda time] captain Dante Leverock and head coach Kyle Lightbourne will be available to the media at the official press conference at the Estadio Nacional.

A Concacaf media liaison told Bernews they “do expect the full team may do a walk through of the stadium immediately afterwards.”

Following Bermuda’s press conference and walk through, the other three teams in Group B – Haiti, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica – will each have their own spotlight with a press conference and walk through.

Bernews will be there to bring you coverage of the day’s events.
