The president of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) captain Horace Burrell, believes the commitment of Red Stripe to the National Premier League is a big boost to the franchise system which has been proposed for the 2015-2016 season.



The proposed franchise system has received negative feedbacks from the football fraternity since it was announced by the JFF.



However, following uncertainty with a new sponsorship deal this season, Red Stripe last night announced a five-year deal to continue its association with the Premier League Clubs Association.



This means that the company will more than likely be aboard when the franchise system starts next year.
