In the face of economic difficulties, Dexter Skeene, chief executive officer of the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League, stands confident that the PL will maintain its status as the best league in the country and by extension, the Caribbean, in 2017 and beyond.

The new 2017 season (April-December) will boast a full calendar, including the return of one of the most antici­pated knockouts, the Classic, which allows the best sides in the Super League—T&T’s second tier league—to test themselves against their Pro League counterparts. In 11 editions, only Pro League teams have won the competition.

Skeene said that in the just concluded 2016-17 season, the Pro League had made many strides, even in economic uncertainty, and will continue to grow with the new 2017 season reverting to the previous April to December format to accomplish sporting and financial objectives.

“The competitiveness of the league continues to improve every season,” said Skeene. “On the final day of the league competition we saw [eventual champions] Central and [runners-up] W Connection battling to the wire for the crown. Also, near the end we had four teams battling for third, which was secured by San Juan Jabloteh.”
