A California based company and a firm registered in Barbados have come together to stage a professional football league for teams in the Caribbean.
The Caribbean Football Trust Limited with offices in Florida and Canada and Concorde Sports Agency head quartered in Beverly Hills say plans are in the pipeline for a kickoff date of September 2015. Both organisations have already signed an agreement and are pressing ahead with plans for the tournament expected to attract 20 teams competing for the league title and over three million US dollars in prize money.
The organisers say prize monies are expected to grow to five million US dollars after the first three years.
The proposed league, dubbed Major League Futbol, (MLS) will be the subject of a meeting in Orlando, Florida February 25 involving the Caribbean Football Trust, an advisory group of investors, regional government officials and other stakeholders of the league concept.
Concorde Sports Agency is a sports marketing firm which focuses on domestic and international player representation, player scouting, image rights and branding.
