The TT Pro League
« on: May 13, 2005, 08:05:55 PM »
 My view is that The Pro Leauge is taking football away from the communities. With all matches being held at the 5 stadia, many people , not even diehard football fans are going out to watch the games .( the openning game between W connection and North east Only had a handful of people).

To be honest, they are the only quality pitches we have , but upgrades to some of the pitches which are locates in close proximity to communities will be a better option in the long run. For example , if W Connection held a game at their training base at Gilbert Park, I am certain the crowd will be much greater . Even the minor leauges have a higher crowd turnout. Why? Because of the location!

But this is just my opinion what do you guys think?

The Leauge should concentrate on creating good fan bases now, because the fotball is of a good standard.There is nt even a TV programme focusing on the Leauge.!!

Finally, I think that the Concacaf Club Championship should be scrapped, and a draft taken from the running of the Ueafa Champion's Leauge.

I doh think it have to be an either or situation.
Yuh cah expect the better players to play on anything less than our best grounds.

Maybe the lower divisions could focus more on the communities in terms of where they play.  Forming links between the Pro League teams and community teams would be a good step for some more clubs.  Colllaboration with use of resources, coach and player development, marketing strategies/initiatives and getting the relevant support to upgrade/maintain grounds(local governments???).

Ideally we would have good support and participation in football at all levels....locations.

Any time football is free you will get a crowd where ever it is,this is one of the main complaints of football fans in T&T,the small man can't afford to pay to go and see football.
