Hello and a warm welcome! My name is Nathan Carr and I’m a 20-year-old Sports Journalism student at Staffordshire University, born and raised in England, who set up The Home of Caribbean Football (NewsNow accredited) in my bedroom aged 15 on 9th June, 2012. That was around the time when my interest in Caribbean football really started and I decided to create this blog in order to explore that interest in more depth. I hope it can convince the masses that there is more to the Caribbean than just the stereotypical sunshine, sandy beaches and turquoise sea. From the outset the aim has been to try to provide good quality, insightful and passionate coverage on Caribbean international teams, tournaments, domestic leagues, players abroad and up-and-coming stars. I currently run the blog as a hobby in my spare time. I do my best to ensure the information that you read comes from reliable sources and contacts based across the islands.
Portfolio > I’ve written about Caribbean/CONCACAF football for the likes of World Soccer, the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Guide, Caribbean & Co, When Saturday Comes, Just Football, Bleacher Report, Goal USA, A Football Report and Sabotage Times. I’m regularly asked to appear on radio shows/podcasts having been a guest on AFR’s World Football Show on Sports Tonight Live, KISWE App with Jimmy Conrad, The Dugout Show with Jason Roberts, Feuerstein’s Fire Show, Reggae Boyz Commentary, Last Word Soccer Club, Women’s World Football Show and others. I’m a co-presenter on the weekly SoundCloud and iTunes podcast Caribbean Football Weekly (formerly on YouTube through ‘Google Hangouts’) alongside Simon Preston and Santokie Nagulendran.

Vision > I’m very passionate about and committed to the growth of Caribbean football – from grassroots level to senior level – and genuinely believe that this part of the world can enjoy consistent success in the future. I want to help Caribbean football grow as much as possible by spreading the word and providing exposure. My dream is to work out in the Caribbean writing about football on a professional basis. I will keep working hard to one day fulfill this dream – not necessarily for me, but for the people of the Caribbean.
