The Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) will host the first-ever CONCACAF multi-team international soccer event in three venues, Ed Bush (Westen Zone), Annex and the National Stadium.  This event is part of the overall football development initiative at the Confederation level, launched by CONCACAF President Jeffery Webb. It is the first time that national teams will be competing against each other at the U-15 age level under the umbrella of the North America, Central America and the Caribbean Confederation (CONCACAF).

“In order to foster growth and development of all the CONCACAF, as well as, Caribbean member associations, we have to create competitive opportunities for young men and women to compete at early ages, so that they progress in the best possible conditions to their full-national teams” said Jeffrey Webb, President of CONCACAF and the CIFA.

“We need to ensure as the host nation, that we put on a world-class event, said Bruce Blake, the Local Organizing Committee Chairman and the CIFA First Vice President. About 75 to 100 volunteers will be needed to ensure that this tournament is organized to the level expected by CONCACAF. We will need volunteers in many areas, including teams services, event management, protocol, transportation and medical services, to name a few. Persons interested should contact Assistant General Secretary Mark Campbell at [email protected] or call: 345-916-3462.

“A strong football history, very good infrastructure such as accommodations, transportation, as well as good competition facilities, are the primary reasons Cayman Islands have been tapped to host this important international event” said Paul Macey, Deputy Chairman of the CONCACAF U-15 Cayman Islands 2013 LOC, and acting General Secretary of the CIFA. Macey continues saying: “It is a great honor and wonderful opportunity for Cayman Islands to host this prestigious event and to welcome teams from throughout the Caribbean and Central American regions”.
