Twenty-four players from the region took part in the inaugural Caribbean Player Combine in 2014 held in Antigua, and two moved on to feature in the MLS Player Combine. This year, the four-day event will take place at Bayamón Football Club facilities, and will include training session and games against local clubs.
“We’re excited to be returning to the Caribbean with the prospect of identifying some of the area’s top young talent,” said MLS Executive Vice President, Todd Durbin. “Our league currently features more than 25 players from the Caribbean Islands, including Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico and Trinidad and Tobago.”
The annual adidas MLS Player Combine gives professional soccer scouts the opportunity to see top players in action prior to the annual MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas. Participants have moved on to successful professional careers as well as participation in their national teams.
