CONCACAF Executive Committee meets in New York City

5/15/2008 - The CONCACAF Executive Committee met today at the offices of the General Secretariat in New York City.

The meeting was presided over by CONCACAF President Jack Warner, who just days earlier was in Chengdu, China during the earthquake that struck the city. President Warner opened the meeting by thanking his colleagues and constituents for all the messages of concern that were sent to him during the past few days. He also praised the leadership of the Asian Football Confederation for their efforts in facilitating his departure from China which enabled him to arrive in time for the CONCACAF Executive Committee meeting. President Warner also expressed his sincere condolences to all those affected by the tragedy.

The CONCACAF Executive Committee was briefed on several issues, including:
• Reports on the recently concluded 2008 CONCACAF championships such as the CONCACAF Champions’ Cup™, the Men’s and Women’s Olympic Qualification, and the CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship
• Developments related to upcoming CONCACAF championships such as the 2008 CONCACAF Futsal Championship, the 2008 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 and Under-20 Championships, and the 2009 CONCACAF Under-20 and Under-17 Men’s Championships
• Updates on the inaugural 2008-2009 CONCACAF Champions League™, including information on qualifying criteria, commercial guidelines, and stadium standards
• Summaries of recently concluded broadcast and marketing agreements for several tournaments
• Plans for the upcoming XVII Extraordinary Congress of CONCACAF to be held in Sydney, Australia on 28 May 2008 and the 59th FIFA Congress to be held at Atlantis in Paradise Island, Bahamas in May 2009.

The next meeting of the CONCACAF Executive Committee will take place in November 2008 in the Cayman Islands.

Silly old me. I didn't realise Australia was part of CONCACAF.

I mean it must be-right? Why else would you fly all of the delegates from North America, Central America and the Caribbean all the way to Sydney?

After all, if Australia wasn't part of CONCACAF, you wouldn't waste all of that money that could be put towards football development, would you?

Wait a minute, I know why they're meeting in Sydney- they want to enjoy the sunshine, and of course, you can't get that in the Caribbean, or Miami, or California, or Mexico.

Obviously, I don't have the intelligence to ever be a CONCACAF delegate! Thank God they have Jack to make these sensible, economical decisions!
