CONCACAF eyes statute changes that could impact CIFA

Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football member associations are mulling changes that could impact Cayman football.

CONCACAF recently released proposed changes to its statutes and those proposed changes will be voted on next month.

Among them, CONCACAF looks to establish a 15-person council to replace its existing Executive Committee.

It’s also interested in setting up several more committees with varying numbers of independent members and implementing more measures like background checks, term limits and salary disclosure for leadership.

It also is looking for the right to audit any member association receiving money from the Confederation.

Acting Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) President Bruce Blake says CIFA is waiting to see how it shakes out before making any constitutional changes of its own.

“It doesn’t make any sense for us to revise our statutes, approve them just for CONCACAF and FIFA to come again and say, ‘we’re gonna implement this,'” he said. “We’re gonna wait until CONCACAF has its final statutes and FIFA has its final statutes. They’ll  let us know what has to be implemented by the National association and then we start the process of revising our statutes.”

Member associations of the governing football body for North America, Central America and Caribbean will vote on the proposals next month.
