El ya habia jugado con los Islanders, cuando era un club amature en el 1995.
No sabia es. Bueno estoy feliez oir que ya ha fiirmado con un club.
Bueno según la noticia nos lleva a pensar es que Frias esta en préstamo con los Islanders con opcion de ser comprado en el 2011. So el ya había firmado con W. Connection. Hay que ver lo que dicen los Islanders cuando lo anuncie, ya que ellos se tardan como tres dias después que se sabe una firma por otros medios a confirmarla.
Bueno con un prestamo de ese tipo (con la opcion de comprarlo al 2011) es bueno para los dos lados si es verdad. Frias tiene la opportunidad de comprovarse en una liga de buena calidad, mientras por el lado de Islanders podrian ver lo que puede hacer Frias sin tener que pagar una transferencia completa.
Me parece dificil creerlo, porque Jonatahan nacio el 11 de abril del 1987
Estoy asumiendo que tenia equipos juveniles los Islanders, la info viene de los foros nuestros, estoy recopilando info de el para abrirle la pagina en wikipidea.
According to balompiedominicano.blogspot.com the DR might send the MNT and also the FNT to the central american games in Magayuez, PR
For each team they will ask the secretary of sports 5 million rds, which is like 139,000 US
IMHO, with that amount of money there are lots of better ways to improve dominican soccer
Its a IOC event so they cant sent the SeniorNT, its has to be the u-21 I belive.
Mens is Sub 23...
Womens is SNT
They are planning on sending a good team with lots of Dominicanos playing abroad, one of them would be Jonathan Faña Frias from the PR Islanders
Well unless they're sub23... I doubt they will be able to play... sorry try again... the DR is not going to beat Puerto Rico anytime soon even by cheating (just kidding)
Farias would still be a U-23 up until next year (he's going to be 23 this April).
Cool then it will be interesting to see... I know its U21 plus 3 U23 reinforcements... so he might be in there...
For the women - they can't just send a team - they have to qualify first
There are 4 places for Caribbean teams, 4 for Central American.
Dominican Republic are hosting a qualifying group in the next few days:
26th March - Dominican Republic v Turks & Caicos Islands
28th March - Haiti v Turks & Cicos Islands
30th March - Dominican Republic v Haiti
If they win the group, they will qualify for the 8-team Caribbean Championship. The top 3 teams from this will qualify for the Central American & Caribbean Games, plus Puerto Rico as hosts. Dominican Republic are not even favourites to win their qualifying group, let alone finish in the top 3 of the Caribbean.
Who won last night between DR and Turks?
Dominicana beating T&C 3 - 1
Nice. Good luck in the future.
I wish we could rely on HARD AND CONSISTENT WORK, and not on good luck
Anyway on sunday we had the second game
HAITI 5 - 0 T&C
And DOM REP 1 - 2 HAITI
Haiti goes to the next round
Felitasyon to their squad
Great to see this topic here; please keep us posted
I think DR should take the initiative to create and host a yearly Great-Antilles Cup with Haiti, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Jamaica.
Additionally, a Hispaniolan cup with clubs from Haiti and DR would benefit DR football greatly.
Of course, Haiti would gain little in the Hispaniolan cup, but the Great-Antilles tournament would benefit everybody!
I notice my Dominican barbers do follow the World Cups and are fairly comfortable discussing soccer. They actually told me of a time when soccer was quite popular in the country and that there were some good school-based clubs. They cannot recall however how and why the sport sort of died out in the country.
Well, if I were the director/president of the DR national soccer association, that would have been in my plan.
you care MORE about dominican soccer than Osiris Guzman, presidente of Fedofutbol
From what I understand, it was typical corruption on our part. In the 1970s, the "club" team presidents convinced the federation and the league to ban school teams from playing in the league. The school clubs had been able to offer scholarships to athletes, and thus had attracted better talent and started to dominate the league. Since the schools also offered instant fans (adults support their school, obviously!), there was also immense fan support for these clubs.
But once the influence of other club owners got the UNPHU and UASD (I believe those two were the dominant ones) banned from professional league play, popularity waned. It's not as if university teams playing in professional leagues is unheard of... ever hear of Mexico's Pumas UNAM?
Anyhow that's the story I heard.
One idea that I've thrown around a few times is having our massively popular baseball teams (among the best outside of the MLB and Japan, it seems) should start fielding soccer teams.
Most futbol clubs in Europe (such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan) also field teams in other sports (basketball, handball, car racing). Heck, el Escogido and el Licey already field golf teams once a year.
Having el Escogido, Licey, and las Aguilas field a futbol team in La Liga Mayor would provide fan allegiances to Dominican fans that don't relate to our current teams. Maybe they could even essentially merge these teams with one of the current teams in their cities.
