The Jamaica Football Federation is mourning the death of Maurice ‘Danny’ Lyn, the owner and former coach of Constant Spring FC, who died today after a battle with cancer at the age of 72.

For more than three decades Lyn was a major player in the Jamaican football community. He was born in Hong Kong before his family migrated to Jamaica coached Constant Spring to several Major League in the 1987/’88, ‘90/91 and ‘92/’93 seasons. Constant Spring won a fourth title during the 2017/’18 season. The team also won the inaugural Jackie Bell Knockout competition in the 1987/88 season.

Lyn also led the club to its only Premier League final during the 1994/’95 season where they lost 1-0 to Reno in the final. Constant Spring also won the only edition of the National ‘A’ League in 1999/2000.

In 2011, Lyn was awarded the Abe Alexander Award from the Kingston and St. Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) for outstanding contribution to local football.

The JFF said Lyn was committed to local football.

“Danny Lyn, as he was widely known, gave his heart and his life to the sport he loved. He was active in every area of the sport, although coaching and mentoring were his passion,” said the JFF in a statement today.

“Danny contributed to the success and livelihood of countless youngsters over many years. The Constant Spring Football Club and the Constant Spring Football Field stand as monuments to his support of the beautiful game.

“His close association with JFF affiliates the Kingston and St. Andrew Football Association and the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association kept football alive and kicking day and night. We are forever indebted to him.

“The JFF through President Mr Michael Ricketts conveys sincerest condolences to his family; close friends and the KSAFA family.”

News of Lyn’s death drew reaction from several members of the coaching fraternity.

Among them, was Andrew Price, who coaches the Humble Lion Football Club in Jamaica’s Premier League. As a student, Price played for St George’s College, which was also Lyn’s alma mater.

“His contribution to the development of football in Jamaica cannot be quantified. We have lost a sterling contributor to football in this country,” said Price, who is also a member of the history-making Reggae Girlz coaching staff. “A man who changed many lives. Walk good Knight. We are much the richer to have shared your life with us. RIP Danny Lyn.”

National U23 Coach Donovan Duckie was also devastated by the news.

“As a boy, I had such passion for coaching, so I would always take the bus to see Constant Spring FC play in the National Premier League.  I never missed a word you spoke at half-time. Sleep well coach. My heart is saddened,” Duckie said in a post on Facebook.

Harbour View Football Club, in a statement on their Facebook page, shed some light on Lyn’s role in the formation of Jamaica’s Premier League.

“Condolences on the passing of our good friend, football stalwart and Constant Spring FC co-owner Maurice 'Danny' Lyn. We lose yet another 'Father-Figure' of the local game, who gave his all to grow the game through his club, KSAFA with the JFF,” said the statement.

 “In 1998, Danny helped to host the first real meeting of the newly envisioned Premier League Clubs, at "The Fish Place" across the road from his CSFC then the restaurant of Vin Blaine.

 Montego Bay duo of Seba United's Bruce Gaynor and Wadadah FC's benefactor, Gene Gray, (now deceased) travelled into Kingston to meet with Carvel Stewart (HVFC), Bradley Stewart (Hazard Utd), Dennis Gordon (White Horses FC), and Dawn Spence-Heron (Tivoli Gardens FC).

Rest in Peace Danny, your deeds were well planted for growth.”

 

The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange says her ministry will be moving to finalize the transformation and streamlining of the national sports entities during this calendar year.

The national sports entities are the Sports Development Foundation, Independence Park Limited, and the Institute of Sports.

Minister Grange gave the update during a meeting of the Board of Directors of Independence Park Limited on Wednesday. She said the transformation was aimed at creating a more efficient and more effective government sport system.

Minister Grange urged the new board to pick up the pace of project implementation.  She said it was vital that the National Stadium and Trelawny Stadium infrastructure development project, which was affected by delays caused by covid-19 and weather conditions, get back on track as soon as possible.

The proposal for the Redevelopment and Upgrading of the National Stadium and Trelawny Stadium is going through all the required stages of the Public Investment Management Secretariat, including submission of a comprehensive project proposal, architectural drawings and the development of a 5-year Business Plan.

The project is now at the final stage which includes submitting financial projections before it can be recommended to the Ministry of Finance and the Public Service for funding.

The members of the Board of Independence Park Limited are: Dr. the Honourable Michael Fennell (Chairman), Mr David Shirley (Deputy Chairman), Mrs Annmarie Heron, Assistant Commissioner Terrence Bent, Lieutenant Colonel Dameon Creary, Mr Lenford Salmon, Mr Carlton Dennis, Ms Audrey Chin, Mr Edward Barnes, Dr Peter Charles, Ms Shaneek Clacken, Ms Stefani Dewar, Major Desmon Brown, General Manager (ex officio)

The members have been appointed to serve for two years.  The new board was constituted in keeping with the National Policy for Gender Equality to ensure that a minimum of 30 per cent of either sex makes up the composition of government boards.

 

With 13584 runs, 22 centuries and 85 50s under his belt Christopher Henry Gayle is arguably the greatest T20 batsman in history.

A personal health crisis is what Olympian Michael Frater said got him interested in the medicinal benefits of cannabis and eventually led to the opening of the 4/20 Therapeutic Bliss dispensary in Manor Park, Kingston on Saturday.

Frater, 38, represented Jamaica at the senior level for more than a decade, winning gold medals as a member of Jamaica’s world-record-setting 4x100m relay teams at the World Championships in Daegu, South Korea in 2011 and again at the London Olympics in 2012.

He also won a silver medal in the 100m at the 2005 World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. He was also a 100m champion at the 2003 Pan American Games in the Dominican Republic.

However, about five years ago persistent problems with his knees forced him to retire.

At Saturday’s launch, he explained how those knee problems introduced him to the healing properties of cannabis.

“I had very bad knees, and I remember waking up one day, and my knees were swollen, and I couldn’t walk. I went to the University Hospital (of the West Indies) where I met with Dr (Carl) Bruce and ran some tests but nobody could figure out what was wrong,” he told the gathering that included Jamaica’s Minister of Sports Olivia Grange, former world record holder Asafa Powell and Jamaica and West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle.

Christopher Samuda, President of the Jamaica Olympic Association and Ali McNab, an advisor to the sports minister were also in attendance and were in rapt attention as Frater shared his harrowing experience.

“I had an IAAF (World Athletics) function in Monaco. I remember leaving on Monday and got there on Tuesday and I couldn’t even walk off the plane. They had to send a wheelchair for me,” he recalled.

Initially, doctors in Monaco believed his condition was the result of doping, he said, but subsequent tests disproved their theories even though they were still unable to determine what was the cause of the constant swelling and fluid build-up in his knees.

He spent two weeks in hospital there where doctors ‘patched’ him up enough to enable him to fly home.

A subsequent visit to a medical facility in Florida was also unable to help him get any closer to identifying what was wrong with his knees, he said which left him fearing he would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.

It was then that his father, Lindel Frater, suggested he tried cannabis oil. He tried it and within a month he felt ‘brand new’, he said.

“I started studying a lot about it and realized that a drug that has been taboo for most of my life is really a miracle drug. It’s really a drug that once taken properly with the proper prescription, the medicinal purposes are exponential.”

Minister Grange applauded the retired Olympian and praised him for his initiative in opening the dispensary. She eventually made the first purchase of medicinal marijuana. Samuda also shared similar sentiments while praising Frater for his venture into the cannabis industry.

Gayle, meanwhile, said Frater’s venture was an example for other retired athletes to emulate.

“I am a big supporter of Michael's career and now his business venture, and from a sportsman's point of view, there is life after your original career and to actually venture in a business is good for him and we are here to support him 100 per cent,” said Gayle.

Powell, who was Frater’s teammate on several national teams, said, his friend and colleague, was always a budding entrepreneur.

“From ever since, Michael has always been the brains among all of us. He has always been driven, business-oriented. I have always admired that about him,” said the former 100m world record holder who brought his wife Alyshia along.

“It’s kind of intimidating sometimes when you’re talking to him, and he is saying some stuff I don’t even know about, so I have always known he would make this step into business.

“He keeps pushing and I am very, very happy for him.”

Jamaica’s Sports Minister Olivia Grange has revealed that the resurfacing of the track at the National Stadium in Kingston should be complete soon and that work on the one at the Montego Bay Sports Complex at the other end of the island is to begin soon.

The refurbishing work was carried out by German company BSW, who laid the previous surface in 2010.

The installation of the previous track in Kingston was completed in March 2011 and was expected to last for at least 10 years in line with international standards.

According to AthleticsBusiness, most modern tracks are built in three layers: a paved asphalt substrate, a rubber performance layer and a textured rubber top layer. Ideally, laser-levelling the asphalt to within a 3-mm tolerance is the first step toward making a consistent running surface across the entire oval. The middle layer can be poured on-site or manufactured in advance and delivered to the site — the latter scenario ensures the greatest consistency in terms of thickness.

According to Minister Grange, most of that work has now been done and the rest should be completed within days.

“The resurfacing of the National Stadium track is 90 per cent complete. We are a few days behind due to rain, but the resurfacing will be completed by the middle of next week, after which, the marking of lanes and boxes will commence,” the minister told Jamaica’s Daily Gleaner.

She said that after the marking is completed, World Athletics will send a technician to test the track and issue the expected certification of the Class One track, the highest possible certification.

The Minister had announced in November 2020 that work on the stadium track was set to begin and that the work on the one in Montego Bay was scheduled for the 2021-2022 financial year. She had asked that the Sports Development Foundation treat the Catherine Hall Sports Complex as a priority for the next financial year which starts on April 1, 2021.

At the time, she said two factors would determine when the work gets going at the National Stadium; the first is that because the track has to be laid on a completely dried surface, it must await the end of seasonal rains.

The other factor is the ability of the manufacturers’ representatives, BSW of Germany, to come to Jamaica to supervise the project and this will depend on covid restrictions.

The resurfacing comes at an opportune time as Jamaica is expected to have its national championships in June to select a team to compete at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan scheduled for July 23 – August 8.

 

The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) presented Guy’s Hill High School, Ensom City Primary School and Eltham Park Primary School with a total of 95 Samsung tablets at a ceremony held at the JADCO in Kingston on Wednesday.

Jamaican track athlete, Briana Williams, the 2018 double World U20 sprint champion, will serve as the race patron for the 2021 Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run set for February 21.

The four-Test Vitality Netball Legends Series between the Sunshine Girls and England Roses has been postponed because of extended restrictions to international travel between the UK and Jamaica because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, according to Netball Jamaica, they are discussing with England Netball, the possibility of having the series in November 2021.

The series was to have got underway on January 22 and was to have been shown live on SkySports in the United Kingdom.

“We are hugely disappointed that the series cannot happen in January, but with the extended restrictions to international travel between the UK and Jamaica, it isn't possible for the fixture to go ahead as planned," the statement from England Netball said.

“We would like to thank the Jamaican national team and the Vitality Roses for their collective efforts to plan and prepare for the series to date, and their support in making this decision.”

Netball Jamaica President Tricia Robinson explained that it was a collective decision based on the extension of travel restrictions from Jamaica to the UK until the end of January 2021 brought about by the ongoing spikes in the UK and the emergence of the variant strain of the virus that makes it easier to spread.

“We are naturally disappointed as this is a second postponement,” Robinson said. “The players are going on a little break now and will resume training in February.”

Robinson said that talks are ongoing between the two federations with a view to having the series later this year, with November being proposed as an appropriate time to resume. This is in light of the fact that players from both teams have been signed by teams in the Suncorp Super Netball League that gets underway in Australia in March.

 

Structures to advance the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) agenda for education and sport have been bolstered by a Protocol of Cooperation between the country’s apex body for sports, the Jamaica Paralympic Association (JPA) and the United State Sports Academy (USSA).

Under terms of the agreement, the Academy will utilize the institution’s expertise and resources to aid Jamaica’s national sporting effort, which is already being upgraded with the JOA Scholarship and JOA Internship Programs that were launched last year.

Due to COVID-19, the recent historic signing ceremony was – for the USSA first-time - held virtually with the Academy faculty and staff on the institution’s campus in Daphne, Alabama, while the JOA and JPA partners signed in Jamaica.

The JOA and JPA team was led by President of both associations, Christopher Samuda and JPA Director and JOA Secretary-General and CEO, Ryan Foster.

“This partnership places the JOA and JPA and USSA at the epicentre of sport and sports development, which is education,” said JOA President, Christopher Samuda.

“Education is indeed at the heart of this partnership as the JOA, JPA and the Academy work together for those who will be the beneficiaries of knowledge and understanding in the various disciplines in sport; disciplines such as sports management and studies, exercise science, sports coaching and recreation management,” added Samuda.

Within a 24-hour span, it was the second occasion marking an agreement with an international partner that was signed off by the JOA, adding to the 10-year historic Memorandum of Strategic Alliance with World Eleven Inc./Argentina Football Association (AFA), which will provide advantages offered by the AFA’s Technology Institute to the benefit of Jamaica’s football.

The USSA traditionally holds face-to-face signings with its international partners and until COVID-19 cases have declined to a safe level, the Academy’s programs will also be delivered online to students and athletes in Jamaica.

“In many ways, the event being conducted virtually is emblematic of the world of sports in 2020,” said Dr Thomas ‘TJ’ Rosandich, Academy President and CEO. “Before this past February, a signing ceremony for a Protocol for Cooperation between the Jamaica Olympic Association and Jamaica Paralympic Association and the Academy would have been conducted in Kingston (Jamaica) amidst sessions on program planning.

“We’ve all seen the changes to the sports profession at the local, regional, continental and global levels this year. However, I view this step today in signing this protocol as an affirmation of the belief that sports will recover and continue to play a major role in society in the days to come,” Dr Rosandich expressed.

 The Protocol of Cooperation marks the return of the institution’s post-secondary, non-degree programs to Jamaica for the first time in a decade.

 Samuda commented: “Cross fertilisation you may call it, cross-pollination, transfer of knowledge, however you may characterise this partnership that has come into being, what is clear is that sport has not only won the battle but the war and that we, the JOA, the JPA and the USSA are transforming qualitatively the game through education and giving sports a defining perspective of multilateral cooperation. Multilateral for this partnership will birth others in education as we here in Jamaica continue to build out the infrastructure in sport on a solid and secure foundation and create synergies across physical borders which cannot deny us the bond, which today has been established.”

Foster, the main driver behind the JOA’s Scholarship and Internship programmes, noted the JOA and JPA’s belief in empowerment through education and training and the legacy it creates for athletes, administrators and other professionals in sports.

“The opportunities that are being made available through this partnership are pioneering - never witnessed before. Members and indeed the wider local fraternity of sport will have more options to expand and broaden their capabilities through the various programmes that will be offered at the bachelor, post-graduate and doctoral levels. With trademark vision and purpose, the JOA and JPA will unite with the USSA, which has a 40-year track record in the delivery of sports education across 65 countries, in creating an enviable model of sports collaboration and development,” said Foster.

“The signal work of Dr T.J. Rosandich, President and CEO of the USSA and his team in facilitating this historic partnership; the stewardship and foresight of President Samuda in identifying and negotiating opportunities for the benefit of our membership and stakeholders; and my own passion to build viable partnerships within and beyond Jamaica that give meaning to lives in sport are motivated by service, an opportunity for which our colleagues and ourselves are grateful,” Foster added.

The Academy has delivered post-secondary, non-degree sport education programs in some 67 countries over nearly half a century. Once COVID-19 cases decline to a safe level, the institution plans to teach its programs on the ground in Jamaica.

Dr Rosandich said: “Fortunately, the Academy is well prepared to provide the quality sports education and workforce development programs that the JOA and JPA are seeking.

“The Academy is already an acknowledged leader in providing online distance education programs. As conditions change and travel restrictions in Jamaica ease, the Academy is prepared to revert to onsite, face-to-face instruction,” said Dr Rosandich.

A significant reduction in the number of athletes that will be allowed to compete is among major changes set to be introduced at the 2021 GraceKennedy/ISSA Boys and Girls Championships scheduled for March 23 to 27, 2021.

Alternative dates of May 4-8 have also been set for the 110-year-old championships, should there be Covid-19-related spikes during the period. The 2020 championships were cancelled because of the pandemic.

Among major changes announced by the Inter-Secondary School Sports Association that are coming for the championships is that because of the restrictions, fewer than 1000 athletes will be able to participate. This is down from the more than 2400 athletes that are usually on show.

What this means is that for events like the sprints (100,200 and 400) only 32 athletes will be allowed to enter and will be comprised of the top-two regional athletes and the next best 24.

Meanwhile, only 24 will be eligible to compete in the hurdles and 800m events. The 1500m will only have 16.

However, the decathlon and heptathlon events will have the usual number of entries but only the top 12 from the field events will be allowed.

 

The Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) has signed a historic Memorandum of Strategic Alliance with World Eleven Inc./Argentina Football Association (AFA) with a goal to exploit advantages offered by the AFA’s Technology Institute and develop the sport of football in this country in every facet.

A first between World Eleven and a Caribbean country, the Memorandum of Understanding, in the first instalment, will last for 10 years.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all parties to the agreement were not present at the JOA’s Olympic Manor headquarters in Kingston and the AFA in Argentina. Hence, the signing - streamed live from both locations - was effected under unique circumstances with pre-signed documentation uploaded to either party, who counter signed simultaneously to signal a done deal.

JOA President Christopher Samuda and Ryan Foster, Secretary General/CEO, signed on behalf of the JOA, while President of World Eleven Guillermo Tofoni signed on behalf of the World Eleven/AFA partners.

Under the memorandum, AFA Technology Institute will be marketed in Jamaica even as it develops local talent and helping it transition to the international stages of the Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup.

“The JOA consciously understands this culture of success which impels us to establish enabling partnerships and which has led us, with the facilitation of the Ambassador (Argentina), to World Eleven, an experienced Argentine football outfit engaged in the business of exporting the AFA football technology, which marries the teaching of practical and technical skills with a customized software that hosts E-learning, evolution and coach grading methodologies,” said Samuda.  

“We have to transition the game to a level where physical analytics, physical kinetics, long-term athlete development concepts and technical learning become the basis on which talent is developed, sustained and matriculated.

“So, as the JOA looks in earnest on a historic qualification of our male and female teams at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, the 11 men and women on the field of play at the Olympiad and the World Cup must be products of a transformed education programme driven by technical, scientific and technological methodologies.”

Foster said the signing “represents another milestone for football not only in Jamaica, but regionally … and is a legacy from which generations of footballers will benefit”.

Foster continued: “The signal work of Mr. Tofoni, CEO of World Eleven Inc. and his team in facilitating this historic partnership; the stewardship and foresight of President Samuda in identifying and negotiating opportunities for the benefit or our membership and stakeholders; and my own passion to build viable partnerships within and beyond Jamaica that give meaning to lives in sport are motivated by service, an opportunity for which our colleagues and ourselves are grateful.

“Football is the winner today. Football is the victor today. And I am pleased that the JOA, World Eleven Inc. and the JFF, inspired by our stakeholders, have been able to champion the cause,” said Foster. “I have every confidence that we will be successful.”

World Eleven Inc., together with the AFA, are developing the AFA Football Technology Institutes (AFA FTI), which are football schools where all the experience of the last 40 years of the AFA is reflected and enhanced by the implementation of technology and software, and are seeking to expand the bases of sports practice for boys and girls from the age of five (5) onwards.

The mission of these institutes is to create spaces where boys and girls can learn and practice soccer/football in promoting social integration, inclusion, friendship teamwork, respect and excellence while experiencing the positive principles of Argentine football culture such as passion, joy for the game and healthy competition.

Tofoni, speaking through an interpreter, said he was impressed with the opportunity for developing boys and girls, particularly through a long-term partnership, adding “…I want to acknowledge the importance of technology that is going to help with the development of football”.

The World Eleven CEO also expressed satisfaction at executing the project despite the COVID-19 challenges and expressed a hope “that the culture of Argentina will be passed on to Jamaica through this contract”.

Tapia, the AFA President, extended “a warm welcome to everyone”, while bemoaning the pandemic’s influence for “not being there today to sign the document”.

A key player in the agreement, Argentina’s Ambassador to Jamaica, Luis Fernando del Solar Dorrego, admitted a realisation of “… the love we have for Argentina’s football based on the shirts of Maradona and Messi” worn in Jamaica.

“Of course, having noticed this, I had conversations with different persons, including Mr. Samuda, and because of the discussions this is where we are now,” added Ambassador Dorrego.

Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) President, Michael Ricketts, welcomed the opportunity to build its capacity.

“Like the Argentinians said, it is the first time they are signing any such arrangement with a Caribbean country. This certainly will build on our capacity from a technical standpoint and certainly from an administrative standpoint. They will help us to train our coaches and reorganize our offices across the length and breadth of Jamaica, both locally and at the national level,” said Ricketts.

“This is something that must positively impact the sport and we want to ensure that even from a grassroots level they would have helped us with our little boys and girls from a technical perspective,” he added. “So the JFF is very delighted and we are hopeful that years down the road we will see the fruits of today’s labour.”

Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited, SVREL, has inked historic deals with horseracing betting solutions provider, BetMakers Technology Group, that will include a five-year sponsorship component intended to revolutionize the racing experience at the 61-year-old Caymanas Park track.

The five-year deals will see the Australia-based wagering technology company engaging SVREL in a one-of-a-kind partnership that will include construction of new infrastructure as well as event sponsorship until 2025.

The direct benefits of this agreement will see the construction of a trainers pavilion and feature-race sponsorship with BetMakers implementing, managing, and distributing a fixed odds betting solution that will give punters more choices when placing their bets.

BetMakers will enjoy sponsor benefits for the Triple Crown series, which comprises the 1000 and 2000 Guineas, the Jamaica Derby, the Jamaica St Leger and the Quarterly Championship as well as the naming of one race for each race day for the entire year.

Solomon Sharpe, Chairman of Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited Chairman said the partnership will transform the local horseracing industry with Caymanas Park being one of the first tracks in the Western hemisphere to implement fixed-odds horseracing alongside tote betting.

In addition, this agreement, he said, reaffirms the strength of the Caymanas Park brand and its potential, which expands beyond the shores of Jamaica. Caymanas has started the journey to become the jewel of the Caribbean and the deal with BetmMkers will aid in propelling the company towards that goal, he said.

Further, he said, that the partnership will enhance the betting menu offered at the track and at OTBs while lauding the wide reach of the partnership that seeks to make an indelible mark on the facility itself with the new construction set to get underway in the New Year.

Meanwhile, Executive Chairman of the Supreme Ventures Group, Gary Peart, affirmed the importance of this partnership deal with BetMakers, the global leader in horseracing distribution and betting solutions.

“We see the fixed-odds horseracing revolution that BetMakers has championed in North America as being a huge benefit to the racing industry as a whole and we are very proud to be one of the first tracks that will implement the sophisticated fixed odds system they provide. This a major transformational change that will vastly benefit the betting public and all of the industry stakeholders,” Mr Peart said.

Caymanas Park has found winning ways with new variations to its bet types in recent months. The recent re-fix of the Sunrise Six to the jackpot-style Reggae Six has reinvigorated betting at the track and OTB’s islandwide.

The Reggae Six bet type has created scores of millionaires since its October-3 start date and has contributed to record-breaking revenues for the promotions company even as it grapples with the fallout from COVID-related closure earlier in the year and ongoing restrictions, such as crowd control.

“What they are bringing to the table for Supreme Ventures and Caymanas Park provides the racing industry in Jamaica with a tremendous boost and opportunity for growth,” Mr Peart said.

“Their commitment to be involved in the local horseracing industry in such an all-encompassing manner has set the stage for what will be a renaissance of Jamaican horse racing.”

Todd Buckingham, CEO of BetMakers says the deal with Caymanas Park is symbolic of its mission to globalize and modernize the horseracing industry.

“This is a very exciting deal for BetMakers and Supreme Ventures Limited, operators of Jamaica's sole racetrack, Caymanas Park. This deal illustrates BetMakers' plans for all its current and potential racetrack partners, and its aim of globalizing the horseracing industry,” he said.

He described the deal as a win-win with Caymanas Park being introduced to fixed-odds betting and local races broadcast across their Global Racing Network.

“Having the opportunity to work alongside Supreme Ventures in bringing fixed-odds betting on horse racing into Jamaica, while also exporting the Caymanas Park signal across our global racing network is a major coup for BetMakers. But what adds further excitement is the hands-on approach this deal entails”, Mr Buckingham said.

“BetMakers will use its knowledge of the vibrant Australian racing scene to work with Supreme Ventures in making Caymanas Park not only the jewel in the crown of Caribbean racing, but also in becoming a truly international racing destination, by having a gold standard product”, he said.

The Supreme Ventures Group actively began positioning Caymanas Park as a destination in 2020 by signing an agreement with Chukka Tours to include the historical track as part of its tours.

Professional Football Jamaica Limited has secured two other club sponsors for the Jamaica Premier League 2021 season.

World Champion long jumper Tahjay Gayle and 2018 Mr. Olympia Amateur bodybuilder were among four athletes who received awards at the Prime Minister’s Youth Awards for Excellence on Sunday.

Professional Football Jamaica Limited (PFJL) announced today that they have secured two sponsors for the Jamaica Premier League season that seeks to get underway in early 2021.
