Sport Ministry: Have your say on the Women’s Professional League

The Ministry of Sport is asking women’s football fans and stakeholders to share their opinions in an an interactive chat on the proposed Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Professional League (WPL), which is due to kick off in late May 2015.

The WPL, according to the Ministry of Sport, is “a joint initiative” between the Ministry of Sport, the SPORTT Company, the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s League Football (WOLF).

The WPL will “run for a couple of weeks” and should involve players from throughout the Caribbean and the Americas. It aims to mirror the structure of the United States Major League Soccer (MLS) and regional cricket’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with franchises, salary caps and a draft system.

Fixtures are proposed to play on community grounds around the country.

So, the question is: What do you think about the value and chances of success for the proposed Women’s Professional League?
