    Did National Premier League Winners Nagico Bombers’ players opt out of this? Because I realize no one from Portsmouth was selected.. Asking not assuming.

      Educate yourself first please. Out of 20 players 6 defenders were selected. How many defenders you want them to select in a 20 man squad. fyi The player that has to do the fitness test is a defender.

    Good luck to the team, looking forward to see you play good football and let the cup remain in Dominica. It would be good if the public could know what team each member of the squard plays for in the national league and who are the overseas players.

    Approximately forty years ago, we last had such a major event in Windward Islands Football in Dominica. The Government talks about its interest in sports and its beautiful stadium. Great opportunity to show your beautiful stadium, why isn’t the Dominica match being brought through live streaming. I am positively sure their is going to be live streaming of the 5th of May bash. :mrgreen:

    Admin: We’ve made some inquiries and found out that the tournament will be streamed live. Keep monitoring DNO for more information as soon as it becomes available.
