A-LEAGUE: Puerto Rican club joins league
November 26th, 2003 7:38PM



The A-League will expand into Puerto Rico next season with the entry of the Puerto Rico Islanders of Bayamon, a city within the greater San Juan metropolitan area.

Puerto Rico is a commonwealth associated with the United States.

''We are excited to welcome Puerto Rico to the USL family,'' said USL CEO Dave Askinas. ''The Islanders presented us with a unique opportunity to continue to expand our horizons internationally and enhances our link to the Caribbean beyond the handful of players who play in the U.S. and Canada with our other franchises.

''We feel that USL has played a critical role in developing the game in both the US and Canada and that through the Islanders, the Puerto Rican soccer federation and the city of Bayamon, we will be able to do the same in Puerto Rico and the greater Caribbean area.''
