TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras -- Reform, transparency and continued development were key topics addressed by CONCACAF President and FIFA Vice President Jeffrey Webb at Tuesday’s Federación Nacional Autónoma de Fútbol de Honduras (FENAFUTH) Congress. 

“This Congress demonstrates the power of Honduras’ football and the remarkable efforts of its current administration to continuously drive the growth of sport, elevating it to global standards,” said Webb.  “Honduras is a significant hub for the development of football in the CONCACAF region and I am confident that FENAFUTH will continue to invest in its development programs." 

FENAFUTH President Rafael Callejas was delighted that President Webb spoke with the Federation’s members and was able to observe the steady progress of football in Honduras.

“Our Congress represents the accomplishments of the Federation over the past 12 months – from a financial and tangible standpoint,” said Callejas.  “Our administration has come very far, achieving all the goals we set for ourselves since the beginning.  I am very proud that we have successfully reinvested in our sport over the years and are now in position to see the continual development and advancement of football in Honduras.”

During its two-day stay, the CONCACAF delegation visited on Wednesday FIFA Goal Projects 1 and 4, which are in their final stages of completion.

“The progress and interest taken to complete these Goal Projects reflect the aspirations of the FENAFUTH administration, as they strive to develop the game for the benefit of future generations,” added Webb.
