Bahamas drops out of Group C

Chine built a new national stadium for Bahamas. It was for track and field and soccer. This beautiful stadium will now sit idle. Aparrently China completed all it's tasks and handed off the to the Bahamas. However the Bahamas dropped the ball. They did not meet dates to complete certain things like the infrastructure, parking ect that goeas along with a big project. Hexagonal blog does a good job with links about how and who is to blame.

Now Group C is left with only Panama, Nicaragua and Dominica.

This was a great opportunity for the Bahamas to promote the sport in a new stadium put this is a huge opportunity missed. This is a shame.
