The St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association has announced that the Federation will be hosting a Major League Soccer [MLS] Combine from the 14th to 16th December.
According to a statement from the SKNFA, the MLS Combine enables coaches, executives, scouts and managers to test players in various football disciplines under standardized conditions.
SKNFA President Anthony Johnson said it is an excellent opportunity for local players to try-out for professional contracts in the MLS.
The statement quoted Johnson as saying “our emphasis is upon ensuring that our players get, not only exposure but get opportunities to enhance themselves as players, whether it is through professional contracts or through university scholarships.”
President Johnson said the combine is timely as the Sugar Mas Cup will be held on the 12th and 13th December.
He said “by this time, MLS executives, coaches and scouts, together with the other participating players, will be in St. Kitts and Nevis and be able to witness the finals of the Sugar Mas Cup.”
