In reference to football, a lot has been happening for Dominica as of recent times. Over the past 3 years, the number of foreign-based Dominican players have grown from about 5 to approximately 9 (excluding those on scholarships).
It may seem like a minor improvement but every step forward is a good one since 8 of these athletes are national players. Below is a short list of players, their respective clubs, jersey number:

Football, however, is not the only sport where athletes were given opportunities to play abroad, as we’ve seen an increase in scholarship offerings for our athletes. The Marigot Development Corporation a good example of an organization that has secured numerous scholarships for our athletes in recent times. We look forward to a year of exceptional growth for our athletes and their respective clubs, and we wish them all the best.
