It’s an exciting time for Cayman Islands football with the CONCACAF Under-15 tournament being held here in a couple of months. But the need for volunteers to help make it a success is an issue.
The CONCACAF U-15 tournament runs from 11 to 25 August and Cayman will field a team among the 16 countries competing.
The Cayman Islands Football Association will host the first-ever CONCACAF multi-team international football event in three venues, West Bay’s Ed Bush Sports Centre, the T.E. McField Annex and the national stadium.
This event is part of the overall football development initiative at the Confederation level, launched by CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb.
It is the first time that national teams will be competing against each other at the U-15 level in the North America, Central America and the Caribbean Confederation region.
“We need to ensure as the host nation, that we put on a world-class event,” said Bruce Blake, chairman of the organising committee and CIFA’s first vice president. “We will need volunteers in many areas, including teams services, event management, protocol, transportation and medical services, to name a few.”
About 100 volunteers are needed to ensure that this tournament is organised as stipulated by CONCACAF.
