Major League Soccer Caribbean Combine changes format

The Caribbean Football Union and Major League Soccer have changed their Combine format this year, resulting in some of Cayman’s top football players not getting a chance to be seen by Major League Soccer scouts.

Instead of holding a proper try-out MLS scouts and recruiters will instead watch from the stands at the CFU Under-20 qualifiers in Curacao, but that only works for countries that have a team in the tournament, like Antigua and Barbuda, Bermuda, Cuba, Curacao, Haiti, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis and Trinidad and Tobago.

CIFA Vice-President and CFU Executive Bruce Blake confirms countries like Cayman without a team in the tournament will not get a chance to have their players scouted by MLS Officials.
