The Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) is both concerned and disappointed to learn of the recent arrest of Jeffrey Webb. As this is an on-going investigation, it would be inappropriate for CIFA to comment further, as the presumption of innocence until proven guilty must prevail.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jeffrey and his family at this difficult time.

As a result of the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee on 27 May to provisionally ban Jeffrey Webb from carrying out any football-related activities on a national and international level, the CIFA Executive Committee took the decision to appoint Bruce Blake as acting President on a provisional basis, pending the outcome of any on-going investigation by the FIFA Ethics Committee.

Notwithstanding recent events, CIFA remains committed to the organisation and development of local football. We are focused on hosting the CONCACAF Boys Under 15 Championship in August of this year, the Men’s Olympic qualifying in Haiti this month and our end of season awards ceremony on 26 June 2015, in addition to the completion of the artificial turf field at the Centre of Excellence.

CIFA recognises the importance of football within our community and will continue to support efforts to provide opportunities for local athletes.
