As we reported over a month ago, Dania Jai-alai will be staging a two-month season coming up this December and January in addition to the exhibition they will be holding in April. The news was confirmed by Benny in a posting on Tigers site this morning.
The fronton has applied to the State to conduct live games during the timeframe of December 2022 and January 2023. There will be pari-mutual wagering during those two months with state approval while no wagering will be allowed on the 10 day tournament in April.
Benny said that by early summer he will be looking at putting together an all-star roster for that two-month season.
It is expected to have 22-24 players on the roster.
More details will emerge as time goes on. This is great news – so full court jai-alai lives on!
Everyone out there needs to support them and Magic City so jai-alai will continue.
