There is a new format to football in the region which hasn’t been fully released by CONCACAF just yet, but there is a new thing called the Nations Cup which is going to be coming out,” he said.

“We are just trying to get the calendar together and the Benna Boys will probably try to do a few friendlies this year as we start getting prepared for that tournament which will actually be next year,” he added.

It interests me that friendlies are too expensive for Antigua, but St Kitts is able to fly to Europe...

Then again, Antigua's football finances are probably still sufferning from the Warner-croney syphoning.

It depends how closely it ties to their cricket finances...

Back on topic, any clue on what the CONCACAF Nations Cup actually is? Some kind of UEFA Nations League-style tournament perhaps?

It would seem that way.

"We're looking to establish a league of nations, where we have some consistency for our countries, where they can play on a more consistent basis," Montagliani said.

He added: "A lot of countries struggle getting friendlies, getting competitions. We've got some of our national teams, whether it be in the Caribbean or Central America or even in North America, like with Canada, where rather than playing 40 games in a four-ear period, which is every FIFA date, they play like single digits or 10. You're not gonna grow or develop that way, so this League of Nations concept is for everyone to play on a consistent basis and keep the dream alive to qualify for things like a Gold Cup or obviously a World Cup."
