?CANADIAN citizen Joyce Stewart, who was controversially appointed ?as general secretary of the Barbados Football Association (BFA), is now part of ?a three-member BFA delegation, headed by president Randy Harris, that leaves ?today to attend the 64th FIFA Congress in Brazil, ahead of this year’s FIFA World Cup.
?Stewart, who had been awaiting a work permit from this country’s Immigration Department before starting her office duties, will be joined by Harris and long-standing council member George LasCaris, also a former BFA president.
When asked yesterday whether Stewart had indeed received the necessary work permit, Harris confirmed that the matter had been settled and she was indeed the BFA’s general secretary and was entitled to represent the country at FIFA meetings.
Apart from the FIFA Congress, the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) and CONCACAF will also be holding meetings on Wednesday at the Sheraton Sao Paulo WTC Hotel in Brazil.
