Cali And Courts In $M Partnership


Former Caribbean Club Champion Caledonia A.I.A has entered into a $1.2 Million sponsorship arrangement with one of the region's leading retailers, Courts. This was announced on Monday during a Media briefing at the Courts Megastore in San Juan. The deal is over a three year period starting with the 2016/2017 season and the sustantial injection of funds and resources serve as a revitalization of the relationship between the two parties. Courts has been an integral part of the popular team's success over the years, with major sponsorship arrangements during the late nineties which continued with player sponsorship when the Easten Stallions entered the Pro ranks.

Since their spectacular showing in the 2011/2012 season which culminated in the Caribbean Club Championship, the TT Pro League club has fallen on lean times in the titles department as they saw an exodus of top players to "greener pastures". This resulted in the Morvant/Laventille based club languishing in the bottom half of the league table in the last two seasons but with a strong youth program they still managed to capture some silverware by winning the Lucuzade Sport Goal Shield in 2015.

Caledonia AIA owner and Technical Director Jamaal Shabazz indicated that the club will continue to invest strongly in youth development while also maintaining its long standing commitment to the community of Morvant/Laventille.
