Jamaica Tallawahs Chief Executive Officer Jeff Miller has refuted reports of the franchise leaving the island for the next CPL season. CPL Chief Operating Officer Pete Russell told the Sunday Gleanerrecently that a move could happen because of the demand from other countries. However, Miller says the Tallawahs owners want the franchise to stay but are going to need greater support from the Government and the private sector.
Meanwhile, Miller noted it wasn't an easy decision to host the majority of the Tallawahs home games in Florida. Three of the matches were held in Broward Park in Florida which the Tallawahs lost and just two midweek games were held at Sabina Park in Kingston which Jamaica won. While acknowledging the franchise is trying to expand its brand, Miller says the franchise couldn't afford to meet certain requirements if all home games were staged in the island.
