We at the Barbados Football Association (BFA) will be continuing in 2018 our vision and mission of “better football for a better life”; to enable persons to enjoy the beautiful game and excel in all areas of the sport through programmes and well organized competitions. In keeping with encouraging professional development, the BFA will be aiming to aid you in obtaining scholarships and increased visibility to scouts, agents and overseas clubs.

Kindly remember that scouts and agents are looking for players who can represent their companies, colleges and clubs in a positive light. That is, when the BFA promotes your social media handle, you are thereby inviting professional exposure to your accounts and your accounts should provide the best possible image you would want future scouts, agents and clubs to see.
