A fresh start
GEORGE TOWN – The historic CONCACAF Sports Summit has been hailed as a resounding success, with the confederation’s top official labelling the one-day event as a fresh start for football business in the region.
CONCACAF’s boss Jeff Webb said the summit had provided new ideas for innovation and creativity, and would serve as a springboard for the organization to strengthen and rebuild itself.
“This can simply be the end of a summit or we can make a start to new dialogue and new collaborations which will bring about a vision of transformation through partnership. There is no choice,” said Webb, also a FIFA vice-president.
“Both the football authorities and the political authorities left the meeting with a renewed spirit of cooperation and I think once you have that in small territories, that’s the only way to go.”
