    Webb to recognize Santos for Fair Play

    Team's Actions following the CONCACAF Champions League Final Exemplified Spirit of Fair Play

    MIAMI - CONCACAF announced Tuesday the decision of President Jeffrey Webb to recognize Club Santos Laguna for the gesture of Fair Play and camaraderie it demonstrated following the Champions League Final match played last week in Monterrey.

    Led by club President Alejandro Irarragorri Gutiérrez and captain Oswaldo Sanchez, the team's entire roster formed a line of honor for the players of Monterrey, and proceeded to applaud each of their rivals as they made their way to the stage to accept the winners' medals.

    "Acts like the one carried out by Santos Laguna demonstrate the best qualities of our sport; the respect for rivals even in the most difficult moments, as after a defeat in an important finals match," said CONCACAF's President, Jeffrey Webb. "For that reason, I've decided to recognize Club Santos Laguna, its players, coaches, administrators and executives for elevating the ideal of Fair Play and promoting this message of unity and respect to our region -- a clear example to follow."

    The recognition will be presented to Santos Laguna at the 2013/14 CONCACAF Champions League draw to be held in Miami at a date to be announced.
