FIFA Vice President and CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb says the confederation will be naming a new task force to examine the feasibility and sustainability of the Caribbean Professional League initiative.
He made the announcement while addressing participants at the opening of the FIFA Grassroots Com-unity Seminar in St. Lucia.
“Our focus relies on enhancing the partnership between governments, the private sector and football community in order to foster cooperation,” said Webb. “CONCACAF is committed to growing our game by empowering all federations through development, so that we continue to progress in a dynamic and innovative environment of collaboration.”
CONCACAF will continue its work in the areas of development, referee and coaching education through its solid administration to help shape future generations and enhance the competitiveness of its players.
“Football is truly a vehicle of social change, and at the Saint Lucia Football Association (SLFA), our goal is to give the boys and girls as many opportunities as possible to grow through the game of football,” said SLFA President Lyndon Cooper.
Delivering on a commitment from the Sports Summit in September 2013, Webb said that task force members will be named at CONCACAF’s next executive committee meeting on November 7 and 8 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
