It has been a tumultuous last half-year for the Cayman Islands Football Association, prompting its current leader to say changes are coming.
Acting CIFA President Bruce Blake says CIFA needs fundamental change to improve its operations. This comes after a seven-month span where CIFA’s former President pleaded guilty in the US to corruption charges, Cayman’s Sports Ministry cut funding to the association amid concerns it has a lack of transparency and Cayman’s Anti-Corruption Committee began reviewing a matter involving CIFA after auditors said they found suspicious financial transactions on CIFA’s 2014 audit.
“We have to restructure CIFA,” Blake said. “We have to restructure our processes, especially our accounting.”
