Blake replaces Webb at the helm of Cayman football

George Town (Cayman Islands), June 8 (IANS) Vice president Bruce Blake has replaced Jeffrey Webb as the president of the Cayman Island Football Association (CIFA) on a provisional basis.

The decision was taken in Sunday’s emergency executive meeting of CIFA following Webb’s arrest in Zurich after being indicted by US law enforcement officials on a number of charges, reports CMC.

“As a result of the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee on May 27 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,” CIFA said in a statement.

Webb was provisionally banned from any football-related activities by FIFA’s ethics committee following his arrest. Webb was also removed as the head of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF).

CIFA says it is “concerned and disappointed” to learn of Webb’s arrest but has declined further comment on the probe.

“As this is an ongoing investigation, it would be inappropriate for CIFA to comment further as the presumption of innocence until proven guilty must prevail,” the statement said.

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

Cayman Islands are preparing to host the CONCACAF Boys Under-15 Championship in August.
