Aline, Solo to launch Women's U-17 World Cup.
By: Ian Prescott (T&T Express).


Brazil captain Aline, United States goalkeeper Hope Solo and Christine St Clair, Canada's all-time national team record goal-scorer of 84 goals in 103 internationals, will all be in Trinidad on September 12 when the emblem for the 2010 FIFA Under-17 Trinidad and Tobago Women's World Cup is revealed.

The three top women footballers, who all played at the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, will be joined by Ricardo Texeira, president of the Brazilian Football Federation who will fly here by private jet for the launch.

Yesterday, at a media conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, FIFA vice-president Jack Warner described the tournament emblem as something worth seeing.

Warner, special adviser to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation, revealed that the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup will be staged at a cost of $25 million and added that although they had not yet collected a nickel in funding from anyone as yet, everything else is on target.

"The future of women's football is Trinidad and Tobago," said Warner. "What we do here next year must elevate women's football and bring it within the psyche of the nation."

Warner also took the opportunity to introduce Nataki Kerr, newly-hired deputy CEO and director of marketing of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the U-17 Women's World Cup.

Warner described Kerr's hiring as the dawn of a new era and Kerr, who has a strong background in business and marketing, said the staging of an Under-17 World Cup here goes beyond just the matches to be played.

She said the tournament will leave a legacy of improved stadiums, facilities and improved appreciation of women's sport in Trinidad and Tobago. Kerr said in the next couple of weeks the public will be receiving lots of information about the tournament.

"We are going to be putting Trinidad and Tobago back on the international scene and it is very exciting," Kerr declared. "We are going to have the best FIFA Women's World Cup ever, in Trinidad and Tobago, in September, in 2010."

The official emblem for the 2010 U-17 Women's World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago will be unveiled on 12 September at a gala function in the capital Port of Spain. Three of the world's best female footballers will be in attendance to promote the event and only the second-ever U-17 women's world finals, the first was staged in New Zealand last year.

Canada's all-time women's top scorer Christine Sinclair, USA goalkeeper Hope Solo and Brazilian captain Aline Pellergino will all be on hand to help give a fitting launch of the competition's official emblem. The three are veterans of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China. Brazilian FA president Teixeira will also be attending.

"The emblem is second to none, it represents the true beauty and diversity of this country," commented FIFA Vice-President and Trinidad and Tobago FA special advisor Jack Austin Warner. "I am pleased to announce today that the emblem will be unveiled to the world...on September 12th. The LOC has planned a gala affair. Take the message to your families, to the mountain tops, Trinidad and Tobago is the home of Women's Football."

Warner also took the opportunity to introduce the press to the newly appointed Deputy CEO of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup 2010, Ms Nataki Kerr. He described Kerr's hiring as the dawn of a new era and Kerr, who has a strong background in business and marketing, said the staging of an Under-17 World Cup in the small dual-island Caribbean nation goes beyond just the matches to be played.

Also addressing the media at Thursday's press conference was Rehana Omardeen , a member of Trinidad's U-17 national Team. She appealed to the audience to get involved in the U-17 World Cup. "This event is not about me or my teammates; it is about the every citizen of this nation," she said. "Mr. Warner has outlined the plans for the country to host this event. But we can do nothing without your support. Every citizen of this nation is a member of the National U-17 team, every citizen is a part of this World Cup. Let us show the world what a great people we are"
