    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua & Barbuda – With the inaugural Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Women’s Caribbean Cup set to start next month, CFU President Gordon Derrick is pleased with the response from the organization’s member associations.

    The tournament, which will crown a champion, will double as a regional qualifying for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

    “It is very encouraging that many of the CFU members have taken up this challenge, it is a very good start,” Derrick said.  “We hope to have a very competitive tournament and will seek to build on its momentum and increase on the numbers until we have full participation for future tournaments.

    “I am very happy because one of my goals as President of CFU was to have a women’s championship to both promote development of the game and to display our women players and it is good that after such a short time we are able to have this competition.”

    Of the CFU’s 31 members, 20 have registered for the competition.  Those numbers are stark contrast to qualifying for the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup, when only three Caribbean nations (Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana and Haiti) participated.
