    CONCACAF, UEFA sign MoU of mutual commitment

    GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands -- CONCACAF announced Saturday that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) for mutual co-operation towards the development of the game.

    The MoU – similar in nature to that signed between CONCACAF and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) in April 2013 – comes as the fruit of long dialogue between the two Confederations.

    CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb and UEFA President Michel Platini, signed the agreement that will reinforce a mutual commitment to development in the Caribbean region, while providing for administrative and operational cooperation between the two Confederations.

    The agreement is a framework to provide CONCACAF with technical assistance and support, while fostering cooperation and dialogue for the purpose of building a strong legacy with sporting, social, cultural and educational benefits.

    "This is another important step as part of CONCACAF's new vision of integration, which aims at gathering the best know-how from each global football community to be able to customize it for the good of the development of our game," said Webb.

    Platini, in his first visit to the Caribbean said, “It is the duty of us who are in the daily business of the game to join forces for the development of global football."

    After his brief stop in the Cayman Islands, Platini will continue to tour the region with official visits to Grenada, Barbados and Antigua and Barbuda.
