Three months after CONCACAF recommended that one of the local governing bodies be dismantled, word has come that the Professional Football Association of Jamaica (PFAJ) has been dissolved. The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) in a release on Tuesday, announced that in consultation with the Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA), an agreement had been reached to dissolve the PFAJ.
The PFAJ was established in 2008 as a joint venture body between the JFF and the PLCA to administer the running and operations of the National Premier League. The JFF says in coming to a mutual agreement, the two bodies had concluded that the original objective for the establishment of the PFAJ could now best be achieved without a third body.
Football's local governing body said both entities will continue to meet to finalize the roles of the two entities going forward. It said on conclusion of these discussions, all stakeholders will be advised accordingly. In February, RJR Sports reported that CONCACAF had said local football does not need three bodies under which to operate and recommended the dissolution of one of the affiliates.
