Caribbean Football Union fully on board for the Soccerex Americas Forum

Soccerex and the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) have today embarked on a new partnership, which sees the CFU become institutional supporters for the upcoming Soccerex Americas Forum in Barbados on 21-22 October.

The mutually beneficial agreement will see Soccerex working closely alongside the CFU to ensure a major turnout of senior executives from member federations. Representing 25 out of the 35 registered FIFA nations within CONCACAF, these member nations play an instrumental role in the development and regulation of football across the region.

The CFU will have a significant presence in both the conference programme, with Gordon Derrick speaking at the opening ceremony and the exhibition hall, which will be used to promote CFU’s brand, tournaments and products and address any key issues surrounding the development of Caribbean football.

 CFU President Gordon Derrick said: 

“Given the uniqueness of the islands and countries that make up the CFU, the opportunity to be able to assemble all of our members in one location with the best of the football industry is something we cannot afford to miss out on. That is why, as a Union, we are fully behind Soccerex and the Americas Forum and we will be ensuring a strong turnout from senior Caribbean footballing administrators.” 

Soccerex CEO Duncan Revie commented: 

“This agreement signifies an important step in fulfilling the aims of the Americas Forum. We will be working closely with Gordon and his team at the CFU to provide a platform for Caribbean football and to help foster new relationships between the region and the rest of the world.” 

With the conference agenda focusing on a number of topics including sport tourism, league expansion, player development and major events hosting, representatives from the CONCACAF region will be playing an important role at the Forum.
