FIFA executive urges Caribbean pro soccer league

AP - Sports

The president of CONCACAF says Caribbean soccer needs a regional professional league to help countries qualify for the World Cup.

Jeffrey Webb says there is ''so much talent in the region and the game needs a professional league and a professional approach.''

No Caribbean country will play at the 2014 World Cup. Only Jamaica (1998) and Trinidad and Tobago (2006) have ever qualified.

Webb is a FIFA vice president and the head of the regional soccer body of North and Central America and the Caribbean. He says he will appoint a task force to study the matter at this week's CONCACAF meeting in his native Cayman Islands.

Keynote speakers include FIFA's secretary general, Jerome Valcke, and Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber.
