The Gipuzkoan striker Jagoba Narbarte (Renteria, 1992) is already a new pelotari by Dania Jai Alai (Florida) after a wait of more than a year with the processing of his visa by the American authorities.
At last, and after many months of negotiations, Jagoba Narbarte has already arrived in Dania Beach where he is playing his first pools with the number 26 behind.
Dania Jai Alai chose Jagoba Narbarte as a new signing for the reopening of the pediment in January 2016, after the works. Among the nine new pelotaris selected by Intendant Benny Bueno were Barandika, Iturbide, Arbe, Lekerika, Ithurria, Aimar, Zabala, Suso and Jagoba. All got the relevant papers for the beginning of 2016, minus Suso and Jagoba. Year and three months later, the OK has already arrived for the Basque striker. He has also obtained the visa Edu Suso, but the latter has declined to go to Dania, so the intendancy has chosen to hire another defender in its place: young markinarra Jon Mandiola.
Therefore, at this moment two are the pelotaris chosen to form the picture of Dania that are waiting for the American visa: Jon Mandiola and the gernikarra Roke Alberdi. During these months, also to fichado by Dania the zuberotarra Nicolas Eyheragaray "Yeche".
Therefore, one of the most outstanding pelotaris of the amateur field, belonging to the Donostia Jai Alai school, and winner of the Xistera final, is already a professional pelotari in Dania. Jagoba has also had several opportunities to play as a professional on the fronts of Euskadi, with the company Jai Alive, measuring himself the likes of Egiguren or Goikoetxea, in the summer season or in tournaments such as San Fausto de Durango.
Dania Jai Alai is already thinking about the possible signings for next season, where the company already has knowledge of the withdrawal of some pelotaris. Due to the problems and the costs that are occurring with the visas, for American companies it is more agile and simple to contract national pelotaris with American passport.
The defender of Jagoba in the final of Xistera, Ekhi Martinez, will debut in the coming days in Frontón Mexico. - with Jagoba Narbarte, The Casino at Dania Beach, Dania Jai-Alai Players and Oarso Bidasoa Hitza.
