Professional Football Jamaica Limited (PFJL) chairman Chris Williams is calling on the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) to reduce the number of clubs in the Jamaica Premier League  (JPL) frpm 14 to 10 as he says the current structure is affecting the product commercially.

Chapelton Maroons absence from Sunday's fixture against Mount Pleasant FC has highlighted the plight of the nation's top football competition which is struggling to keep its professional status.

Williams who was speaking as a passionate football administrator and not as the chairman of the PFJL, says the challenges of the league are real, noting that it's a conversation that needs to be had. 

Williams says good football across the league demands proper financing for the clubs but for that to happen it means fewer teams than are currently in the set-up.
