CYDEC Conference 2019

FIFA officer visits CIFA to talk finances

A FIFA development officer recently checked in with the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) to discuss audits and future funding from the world’s governing football body.

CIFA President Bruce Blake last week wrote in an e-mail that the officer toured CIFA’s Centre of Excellence pitch and held a meeting with CIFA Treasurer Armando Ebanks to discuss CIFA’s finances, audits and the 2016 financial assistance programme.

Bruce said they discussed more grant money through FIFA’s Goal Project programme to install lighting around the field and changing rooms.

The COE has been widely scrutinised, especially since the arrest of former CIFA President Jeffrey Webb.

CIFA last month announced plans to review audits of how it spent FIFA Goal Project funding after Sports Minister Hon. Osbourne Bodden last month criticized CIFA for what he said is a lack of transparency, pointing out nearly US $2 million in funding has resulted in just one building and one field thus far.
