CFU-MLS combine to be held in Curacao, Cayman attendance uncertain

The Caribbean Football Union Friday (21 October) announced the annual Major League Soccer Combine will be held alongside the CFU Under-20 qualifiers, being held 21-30 October in Curacao.

It’s uncertain, however, whether any Cayman Islands player will get the chance to attend.

MLS recruiters and scouts from at least three MLS teams will attend the tournament.

It’s the fourth edition of the combine, which aims to have Caribbean players selected for the annual Adidas MLS Player Combine, in the US.

This year, however, most of the scouting will be done by watching tournament games instead of a proper combine, according to a CFU spokesperson. Because of that, it’s unclear whether countries without teams participating in the tournament — like the Cayman Islands — will be able to showcase their players in any way.

An e-mail sent to Cayman Islands Football Association President Lee Ramoon and First Vice-President Bruce Blake seeking comment on the matter has yet to be returned.

Caymanian Ramon Sealy in the past has been invited to the combine. No Caymanian players were invited in 2015.
