CONCACAF Launches Task Force For Carribbean Professional Football League
Grenada PM Dr. Keith Mitchell and former Jamaica PM Edward Seaga "have been named to a nine-member task force established by the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football" to study the viability of a professional football league in the Caribbean, according to the TRINIDAD EXPRESS. The task force "also includes" Pro League club W Connnection Owner David John Williams. The task force "would examine the feasibility of a Caribbean professional football league, as the Confederation deepens its commitment to the growth of the game across the region." This "will be the second effort to establish a professional league in the Caribbean." A previous attempt to institute a Caribbean league lasted from '92-94, "when clubs from as far north as Jamaica and south as Guyana competed in the now defunct Caribbean Professional Football League" (TRINIDAD EXPRESS, 3/3).
