In the 40th anniversary of Independence of our beautiful island of Saint Lucia, we are happy to inform that plans are well underway for the staging of the SAINT LUCIA INTERNATIONAL MASTERS FOOTBALL INVITATIONAL, under the theme “Be Inspired”. The tournament is scheduled to run from June 7th to June 10th, 2019.
At Veterans in Sports, Inc. we pride ourselves in being the promoters of many events shaping both the sport of football not only in Saint Lucia but regionally and internationally and providing vital support at the community level.
For the past eight years we have hosted the National Veterans Football Tournament consisting of 24 Teams, 60 full 90-minute matches running over a period of three months with venues island wide.
In June 2016 we hosted the first ever International Veterans Football Invitational drawing participation of the England National 45 & over Veterans Football Team and the 767 Legends of Dominica. In 2018, with our continued marketing and development of the Veterans Football Brand we were able to host the Era Masters of Trinidad, and the Island Masters Touring Team of Canada.
Our work in Saint Lucia’s sporting landscape has certainly drawn much regional and international attention to our Veterans Football Brand and has created new partnerships with world renowned athletes like Brian Lara, Russell Latapy, Wesley Webb and Saint Lucia’s premiere footballer and former National Team Captain, Earl “Ball Hog” Jean.
The brand of Veterans Football is a truly wonderful and enjoyable experience. We at Veterans in Sports, Inc. would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in an extremely well-organized football tournament and at the same time experience our great Saint Lucian hospitality.
Saint Lucia’s landscape is as diverse as her heritage. No two parts of the island are the same. The town of Rodney Bay will serve as our Masters’ Football Village, which has some of the top Saint Lucia Beaches as well as popular nightlife spots. Some parts of Saint Lucia are ideal for its nightlife and beachside parties, while others offer opportunities to get away from it all. As an emerging sports tourism destination, Saint Lucia is an excellent choice. Our scenic beauty, natural attractions, many beaches, activities and top-rated accommodations await you on arrival. As you can see, Saint Lucia has diverse activities, and is ideal for groups of people traveling together and for families
