The Caribbean Football Union (CFU) have completed two days of meetings at the Home of FIFA in Zurich, where they have appointed a new committee tasked with progressing the union as a whole.

The Normalisation Committee will be made up of nine members originating from Haiti, Cuba, Grenada, Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda, Curacao and Jamaica. They will act as the CFU Executive Committee until appointing a new one at the union’s ordinary congress in the first half of 2012.

In the meantime they will convene an extraordinary congress to approve new statutes for the CFU in the upcoming 90 days and appoint an interim General Secretary, as well as a legal, finance and football committee. Yves Jean-Bart, President of the Haitian Football Federation, who chaired the meetings, said he was “proud to have been part of such a historical achievement and expects that the decisions taken at the Zurich meetings will result in a brighter and better CFU”.

FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter, who invited the CFU representatives to FIFA, said: “I am very pleased that the representatives of the CFU have reached an agreement in order to move forward and to look into the future, for the good of the game in the region.”
