CONCACAF’s Cayman office closes

CONCACAF says it will keep a small presence in the Cayman Islands but it’s unclear how many employees it will keep in the country after it closed its Cayman-based office.

According to a statement sent to local media, operations have restructured at the governing body for football associations in North, Central America and the Caribbean and it expects its “small presence” to focus on specific functions like broadcasting, tournament execution and press operations.

An e-mail from Cayman 27 to CONCACAF asking how many people it anticipates to employ locally going forward was not returned.

Disgraced former CONCACAF and CIFA leader Jeffrey Webb opened the office in Cayman in 2012. It was housed in the building formally known as the Admiral Financial Centre.

Several employees had left since Webb was arrested in May last year as part of the global corruption probe in the sport.

At least one CONCACAF presidential hopeful questioned whether it would make sense for CONCACAF to have a presence in Cayman going forward.
