Webb backs women

Cayman’s football chief Jeffrey Webb is ensuring that women have a bigger role with the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football hierarchy and FIFA.

Sonia Bien-Aime has been appointed to the FIFA Executive Committee.

Bien-Aime was welcomed into the highest ranks of soccer’s governing body three weeks ago at the FIFA Congress in Mauritius.

“To watch a member of our Confederation rise to a FIFA Executive Committee position is always gratifying,” said Webb, president of CONCACAF. “However, being able to witness history unfolding as someone like Sonia Bien-Aime is recognised by the global football family is unique.

“We congratulate Sonia for her career-long achievements and offer her the full support of the Confederation as she embarks on this new stage in her football career.”

Bien-Aime joined the executive committee along with two other women, Burundi Football Association President Lydia Nseker, who is a full FIFA Executive Committee member and Asian Football Confederation Vice President Moya Dodd.
