    Webb: CONCACAF fulfilling women’s football pledge

    CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb speaks to the media at a press conference in the Cayman Islands on August 5, 2014, on the eve of the inaugural CONCACAF Girls' Under-15 Championship.

    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb proclaimed the Confederation’s continued pledge to women’s football development at a Tuesday press conference, launching the 2014 CONCACAF Under-15 Girls’ Championship in the Cayman Islands.

    The inaugural competition, which consists of 16 teams, kicks off on Wednesday with a pair of matches at both the Truman Bodden Sports Complex and Ed Bush Sports Complex.

    “This is an exciting time for us here at CONCACAF,” expressed Webb.  “This Under-15 competition fulfils our pledge to fully focus on developing football in the region, not only for boys, but for our female athletes as well.”

    Women’s football has a rich history in CONCACAF, primarily driven by the success of the United States with multiple global titles.

    Webb confirmed that to maintain that legacy, CONCACAF had to create more opportunity for its female players.

    “For our confederation to remain world champions in women’s football, we have to continue to develop, continue to challenge our athletes and continue to give them the opportunity to develop as a group,” Webb finished.

    In the past year, the Cayman Islands has hosted two other CONCACAF events: the 2013 Under-15 Boys’ Championship and the 2014 Under-20 Women’s Championship.
