LOCAL PROFESSIONAL football will not kick-off today as planned. The new season will instead get under way in a week’s time with the kick-off of the 2019 edition of the popular First Citizens Cup. “This weekend was supposed to be the Charity Shield. But we decided to do it in a different format, hence we do not play this weekend,” acting chairman and Central FC owner, Brent Sancho, stated yesterday.

“We have a launch next week and we will start with the First Citizens Cup,” Sancho added. And there is a possibility that 12 teams may compete this season. Cunupia FC have already been accepted to join the previous 10 clubs, while Tobago’s 1976 Phoenix are also in discussions to join the Pro League. The impression, however, is that although there will be professional football soon, many things are still to be put in place.
