CONCACAF propose Caribbean football league
Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) president Jeffrey Webb has said the organisation is studying the prospect of a professional league spanning the Caribbean nations, adding such a competition could become reality in three to four years, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/. A similar proposal fell through three years ago, but Webb said CONCACAF would establish a commission to study its viability, adding that ex-players such as Manchester United's Dwight Yorke are behind the plan.
A new league would aim to enhance the development of football in the Caribbean with only four countries having qualified for the FIFA World Cup in its entire history - Cuba (1938), Haiti (1974), Jamaica (1998) and Trinidad & Tobago (2006).
