Statement of CONCACAF President

CONCACAF President Alfredo Hawit statement regarding the officiating of the Gold Cup 2015 semifinal match between Mexico and Panama:

We met with both the Referee Department leadership and referee Mark Geiger. Mr. Geiger, one of the best regarded referees in the region with vast international experience and a proven track record, accepted that officiating errors had been made during Wednesday’s match and that these impacted the outcome of the game. We at CONCACAF regret these circumstances but accept that such human errors are part of the game.
