StJFA to begin inspection of fields for major league next week

MONTEGO BAY, St James — The technical committee of the St James Football Association (StJFA) is to commence inspection of venues that will be used to host games when the Sandals-sponsored Major League gets underway next month.

With the plans to move away from hosting most games at the UDC field in Montego Bay, teams intending to compete in the competition must identify a home field and according to StJFA President Gregory Daley, the fields must be able to host games before they are accepted by the association.

The inspections will be carried out between October 3 and 7, he told the Jamaica Observer West.

Meanwhile, nine clubs have completed their registration, including the requirements on the Jamaica Football Federation's 'Connect System', Daley said earlier this week.

Bogue FC, Heights, Granville, Montego Bay Boys' and Girls' Club, Lilliput Rovers, Reggae Youths, Springers, Flankers United, and Cambridge United are the clubs that have completed their registration of players for the league which is tentatively set to start on October 14, Daley said.
