Football website picks Webb as one to watch

| 06/01/2014

(CNS): As an ambassador for the Cayman Islands, Jeffery Webb is doing an impressive job and fast become one of the most well-known Caymanians on the world stage. The president of CONCACAF and Vice President of FIFA has been picked out by a global football website as one of the game’s names to watch during 2014. Mark Bisson, the editor of World Football Insider, described Webb as “one of the new breed of younger football administrators beginning to make a name for themselves on the world stage” in an article for the website, which focuses on the business end of the sport.

Listing Webb’s achievements so far, including developing football initiatives in the region and cleaning up the image after the previous scandals, Bisson writes that the creation of a director of sports integrity to implement systems to detect and investigate match-fixing issues within the region is one sign of Webb’s forward-thinking leadership.

Meanwhile, Cayman is gearing up for the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship, which starts on Thursday (9 January) and will see the top three teams qualify for the women’s World Cup in Canada this year January 9-19.
