The Cayman Islands Football Association has temporarily. suspended two youth football leagues, under 11’s and under 13’s, to focus on developing the programs properly. This was discussed at the Annual General Meeting held on Saturday 26 November.

We spoke to CIFA President Lee Ramoon, who says with dire funds its hard to keep programmes running.

“We are revamping our grassroots programme, and I it goes back again our under 11’s and under 13’s, so that’s where we are going to start. That’s why we have put off our under 11’s and under 13’s league in the new year to try to really get a grasp on what direction we are going in, it’s all about youth development. I guess we are in a dire situation in regards to sponsorship and funding so that’s why we are reaching out to CONCACAF and FIFA in regards to their programmes that they are putting online, in terms of us utilizing them to continue developing our youth programmes.”

Mr. Ramoon says CIFA is currently concentrating on the under 15’s, by preparing them for a tournament in August. CIFA is also working with international universities who are set to visit Cayman next summer to recruit players from the under 17 and under 20 league.
