    Que quiere decir eso? Un profesional significa que uno gana suficiente para vivir, verdad? Eso incluiria cada equipo de la Primera Division(y varios de la Segunda) en Costa Rica. La verdad no puedo hablar de lo demas, pero creo que Guatemala y Honduras son similares.

    He was born in El salvador to Spanish parents, and played in La Liga with RCD Espanyol, and also coached our sele in the 1950s. Don't if he ever played in El salvador though.

    nuestra liga es profesional, no esta cerca de la ligas profesionales del viejo mundo en cuanto a infraestructura o recursos economicos y materiales pero si son profesionales.

    tendria que revisar mas a fondo el significado de profesional, pero en los deportes, sos un profesional cuando te pagan y jugas a un nivel competitivo.

    mucho depende de a lo que vos le queres llamar "profesional," pero si nuestra liga tiene mucho de ser una liga profesional.

    las reservas se terninaron en el salvador hace un par de anos, pero equipos como aguila tienen sus respectivas canteras y equipos en segunda y tercera division.

    la mayoria de equipos de la liga mayor tienen estadios, no igual de grandes o modernos como los de europa pero si los tienen.

    ya se habla del nuevo estadio en san miguel, y el barraza ha sido amliado y modificado en los ultimos anos.

    no confundas profesionalismo con tecnologia.

    una escuela con el solo hecho de tener un salon de clases, profesores, libros y alumnos ya es escuela, aunque no tenga computadoras ni salones con aire acondicionado ;)

    Cada equipo de la Primera/Segunda division de Costa Rica tiene reservas(se llama alto rendimiento,) categorias juveniles/escuelas de futbol, y Saprissa hasta tiene un equipo en la Segunda(aparte de las reservas) que se llama Saprissa de Corazon. Tambien hemos sacado buenos resultados en torneos internacionales(ganar la CCC varios veces, terminar en tercer lugar de la FIFA Copa de Clubes, etc.)

    Es cierto no todos nuestros estadios son como los de Europa, pero tenemos pasion y grupos partidarios a nivel de cualquier pais grande. Todavia no entiendo tu definicion de una liga profesional.

    Bien dicho, y con el tiempo seguiriamos mejorando nuestro futbol. Los equipos de Panama y Nicaragua(paises que hace poco casi no jugaban) han aguantado bien en la Liga de Campeones, solo faltan dinero y mas organizacion.

    The federations were founded that year, but professional teams existed in most of those countries before that. Cartagines was founded in 1906, for example, 15 years before the Costa Rican federation.

    It was official but back then the players didn't have the restrictions that they have now, so playing for El Salvador and then Costa Rica was not a problem.

    Belize is Semi-pro.

    El Salvador wiki page says it is a profecional league, but no links to their official website.

    Panama looks like 1988 "In 1987, a group of men, composed of Giancarlo Gronchi, Jan Domburg, Edgar Plazas, Jorge Zelasny, Ángel Valero and Juan Carlos Delgado, founded the Asociación Nacional Pro-Fútbol (ANAPROF for short) on February 26, 1988." wiki

    Nicaragua no info, I believe it is still semi-pro.

    Guatemala Founded in 1919 started profecional in 1942 (also sent E-mail to confirm)

    Costa Rica Profecional, I E-mailed their website for the year.

    Honduras it looks like 1964 they went profecional. "National Non Amateur Football League of Honduras, LINAFUTH, that was founded 10 May, that year." from wiki.


    Semi-pro means some teams are profecional (paid) some are not.

    Semi-pro generally means the players are paid but have to work other jobs in addition (aren´t able to concentrate completely on football.) Often the stars are paid enough, particularly if they´re imported from elsewhere, but the teams often don´t have their own stadium, practice at night rather than in the morning, don´t have team doctors or insure thier players, etc.

    Most of Nicaragua´s first division teams are pro (as far as $$,) and many in their second division pay something. All in Costa Rica´s first division and a few in the second are pro, and all in the second pay something. Nicaragua´s and Real Esteli´s pages are periodically put up and taken down.

    Here in the USA we have semi-pro leagues, especially with women soccer, some teams pay their players (not much) and other teams do not pay their players. I guess it could mean many things, but it comes down to not fully paid professionals.

    The PDL is different and has more to do with NCAA rules. Florida, New York, and California all have several that pay something.
