Lionel Eli, a former Barbadian Davis Cup player now based in Toronto, said that in this year's challenging global economic environment he is prepared to offer his treasured database of sporting clients to the region for the design and promotion of fitness getaways.

The North American Soccer League (NASL) held its inaugural annual general meeting in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, last Thursday through Saturday. Representatives of the 11 member teams attended the meeting and made several key decisions following the announcement by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) last Thursday that teams from the NASL would play in a league administered by the USSF in for 2010 season.

A new professional soccer team has been formed in Miami and Caribbean players are looking to make a mark on the fledgling club. Miami F.C., a franchise of the United Soccer Leagues (USL), has reportedly attracted the services of several Caribbean players, the most prominent being Jamaica’s Onandi Lowe, a veteran of Jamaica’s successful World Cup 1998 campaign.


Lowe, a highly rated utility player, who excels as a striker, is trying to overcome off-the-field setbacks to a once promising career. Last year Lowe was freed of drug trafficking charges in England, but he reportedly lost out on lucrative playing opportunities due to the cloud surrounding his court case.
