Businessman Burton Rodgers is leading an effort that calls for a USL franchise to play its games at Thomas A. Robinson Stadium in Nassau. While it is going to take time for the process to play out, several prominent groups–including AEG and the National Sports Authority–are working with Rodgers on the plan.
The timing of when, if at all, a team would be added to the Bahamas remains to be seen, as the process is in the early stages. However, Rodgers believes that those involved in the proposal are eager to see it work. More from Tribune 242:
“The conversation about this has been going for a while and we have been undertaking the lengthy process of trying to make this happen,” Rodgers told The Tribune yesterday. “The planning is still in the very early stages and there is much left to be done, but all of the project’s stakeholders are very excited to be involved in this process. I’m a sports fanatic and I’m attracted to everything in the sports world. I attended several of the major soccer matches at the stadium – Totteham versus Jamaica and the Bahamas against the US Olympic team – and I realised firsthand the potential the sport could have here. It’s the number one sport in the world of course but the growth recently in North America has also been tremendous.”
