Members told to use FIFA funds
Football federations in the Caribbean region are being encouraged to take the monies FIFA is offering and upgrade their game.
The call was made to 22 Member Associations (MAs) by FIFA regional director for Africa and the Caribbean Veron Mosengo-Omba, and Caribbean Football Union president Randy Harris during the opening ceremony of a two-day workshop on the new FIFA Forward Regulations at the Hilton Barbados on Wednesday.
“I think the problem is we are not aware of some of the opportunities available . . . . Right now, we have the opportunity to become self-sufficient. I have observed many of us are not respecting the regional office,” said Harris, who is also president of the Barbados Football Association.
“We feel because we have friends in FIFA, we can bypass the proper channels. Let us use the regional office to our advantage and let us see if we can use this money,” he further declared to the presidents and representatives from across the region gathered at the hotel. (RA)
