MLS announces new Caribbean Player Combine, to be held in Antigua in January
The search for the next Shalrie Joseph begins ... now.
On Thursday, at a press conference in Antigua, MLS announced a new partnership with the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) to host a Caribbean Player Combine January 2-5 in St. John's, Antigua. The top players at the event, to be held at Antigua Recreation Grounds, will earn an invitation to the adidas MLS Player Combine in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., held later in January.
“We recognize that the CONCACAF area, and particularly the Caribbean, is rich with soccer talent,” MLS executive vice president Todd Durbin said in a statement released by the league. "This will be an opportunity for our scouts to evaluate and identify the region’s top players."
