MLS plans combine for Caribbean soccer players

Major League Soccer is planning a combine for elite Caribbean

players to be selected for the league’s annual player evaluation


Elite players from the region aged 18-21 will be invited to

practice and play in front of league scouts from Jan. 2-5 in St.

John’s, Antigua.

MLS Executive Vice President Todd Durbin says the Caribbean is

”rich with soccer talent, and this will be an opportunity for our

scouts to evaluate and identify the region’s top players.”

Players who make the cut in Antigua will be invited to Florida

for the annual MLS Player Combine ahead of the draft.
