ⓘ Bigi Wey Sports Center

Bigi Wey Sports Center is a sports venue located in Brokopondo District, Suriname. It hosted a knockout tournament marking the 150th-anniversary of Surinames emancipation day.

In 2009, the Ilonka Elmont Foundation conducted a research into sports venues, sports needs and sports participation in Brownsweg. They inferred that Brownsweg needed a sports venue and planned to make one. The construction was a joint project of Rosabel Goldmines, the Ilonka Elmont Foundation and the KNVB Royal Dutch Football Federation.

Constructed in 2010, it was officially opened with a ceremony in 2012. Unsuitable weather forced the inspection of the field to be rescheduled.

The construction cost amounted to over 625.000 dollars in total.
