Webb is heavily backed

Jeffrey Webb, President of the Cayman Islands Football Association, has accepted the nomination for President of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF).

CONCACAF, the continental governing body for association football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean, is set to elect a President at its Congress in Budapest, Hungary on 23 May.

By Sunday night, when nominations closed, 25 of the 40 member countries, with representation from all three of the CONCACAF zones, had nominated Webb. Unless there is a huge shift in voting in Budapest, Webb is going to be the most powerful football executive in the region.

β€œI am humbled by the tremendous out pouring of support and encouragement received from so many of the member countries,” said Webb, β€œIt is this unity of the CONCACAF that will champion our success and if elected, it is my intention to build on that unity through collaboration, transparency, integrity, engagement, and accountability.”

Webb has over 20 years in leadership positions in football, as President of the CIFA, FIFA Executive Committee, Chairman of the Caribbean Football Union

Normalisation Committee, member of the FIFA Transparency and Compliance Committee, Deputy Chairman of the FIFA Internal Audit Committee, and Chairman of the CONCACAF Youth Committee, bringing extensive experience and strong leadership to the role if elected as President of the CONCACAF.
