JWebb CFU Curacao 2 (268x300).jpg(CNS): In the wake of last year’s scandals, the members of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) met in Willemstad, Curacao, this week for an Extra-Ordinary Congress where members adopted the new CFU statutes. Jeffrey Webb, Chairman of CFU Normalisation Committee and President of the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA), said the three day programme was extensive and included a delegation from FIFA, supporting the initiative and providing one-on-one development sessions with each member association. The programme also included meetings of the Legal, Football and Finance Committees.

According to officials, the legal committee had spent the past two months developing a comprehensive draft of CFU Statutes and collaborated with the member associations to ensure they were involved in the review process, prior to arriving in Curacao.

A thirty page semi-final draft Statutes was presented at the Extra-Ordinary Congress, which was reviewed to allow member associations a final opportunity to contribute, share concerns or provide alternate wording, until the document was adopted and approved in its entirety.

“It was evident throughout the three days, that the CFU members continue to be focused on our sport, accessibility and development,” said Webb.  “Every member of the CFU continues to be committed to the union’s solidarity, but it was the unanimous adoption of the CFU Statutes that highlighted this message. We are embracing our future with purpose, passion and performance. It is a great day for football in the Caribbean, and steers our course for a great future.”
