At 6:15 this evening George Abrahams, manager of National Sports Ltd., leaves on a triple-duty tour which will see him discussing cycling for the Jamaica Cycle Racing Association in Venezuela, football for the Jamaica Football Association and cycling for the JCRA in Trinidad and finally attending a meeting of the Central American and Caribbean Sporting Organization in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Mr. Abrahams is the first CACSO member from a non-English speaking country.

As president of the JFA, Mr. Abrahams will try and get the Trinidad FA to join Jamaica in bringing down to the Caribbean a powerful English amateur side, which would play a series over a week in Trinidad and come on to Jamaica for three matches during the second and final week of the tour.
