Acting Cayman Islands Football Association President Bruce Blake says he was never interested in becoming CIFA President.
Blake, who took over after former CIFA boss Jeffrey Webb pleaded guilty in the US to several counts of fraud as part of the global corruption probe in football, recently said he won’t run for President when the election is held at the upcoming CIFA Extraordinary Congress.
“It was an easy decision,” Blake said of not running. “I’m not here about the Presidency. I’m just here about doing the work and getting stuff done and moving CIFA forward.”
At the upcoming election, CIFA members will vote in a new President and Deputy General Secretary. After the election, Blake will remain as CIFA’s First Vice-President.
“Whichever President comes in, we’ll be happy to work with him. Not just myself but the Executive,” Blake said. “As you know, in our situation, because we have a small Association, the President position is a working position along with everyone else. Everybody has to chip in and do the work.”
