Webb unites CFU

Football in the Caribbean has been in a malaise since last summer’s cash for votes scandal and Jack Warner resigning as a FIFA official but it is slowly getting back to a cohesive unit.

Members of the Caribbean Football Union met in Willemstad, Curacao last week for a three-day congress. Curacao football President Rignaal ‘Jean’ Francisca hosted the delegates. Cayman Islands football chief Jeffrey Webb gave the feature address which was warmly received.

The CFU Extraordinary Congress Programme included meetings of the legal, football and finance committees. The most significant item on the agenda was the review and approval of the new CFU Statutes.

Webb said: “Every member of the CFU continues to be committed to the union’s solidarity, but it was the unanimous adoption of the CFU Statues that highlighted the message.”
