    CONCACAF mourns the passing of Nelson Mandela

    “At CONCACAF, we are deeply moved by the passing of Nelson Mandela today.

    As a token of respect and admiration to the inspiration he has infused during my personal journey, I would like to pay tribute to Madiba’s legacy. A man whose existence has inspired such universal admiration on his life-long quest for undeniable heightened human values. The world should hope to see more heroes like him, able to touch countless hearts with his fervent passion for an altruistic cause, while spreading words of wisdom with selfless humility for the sole good of human kind. Let us never forget what a natural leader of such great stature looks like.

    With gratitude to his unequivocal legacy, we extend our condolences to Mr. Mandela’s family, friends and the world at large on this sad day. Our prayers are with you.”
