FIFA, CONCACAF officials cut deal with local bodies to resolve Guyana football woes – 11th Jan 2013
Four men and a woman came from FIFA and CONCACAF to sort out a football dispute in Guyana. And before they left, there were handshakes and smiles all around. That is because they cut a deal with the local bodies that will hopefully allow football in Georgetown to run smoothly. But according to the CONCACAF President, Jeffrey Webb, they could have resolved the matter on their own.
The parties agreed with the prodding of the international representatives to a number of measures, including the withdrawal of the court action which the GFA had brought against the GFF. The GFA will also have its election in two weeks time.
President Jeffrey Webb says no sanction will also be faced by any of the clubs or organisation as a result of the court action.
The the heads of the two bodies also publicly committed themselves to the process towards a return to normalcy.
