Cayman stays sidelined for Caribbean Cup

Cayman’s men’s national football team will not participate in the Caribbean Football Union Caribbean Cup in 2016.

It marks the third-straight time Cayman will miss the region’s premier national team competition and qualifying tournament for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Cayman is just one out of five CFU member associations not participating in the event. There are 31 CFU member association countries in all.

Cayman last played in the Caribbean Cup in 2010, when it went 1-1 in group play.

CIFA President Bruce Blake is off island this week at the National Soccer Coaches Association of America convention, in the US. He did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment on Cayman’s absence from the tournament.
