Belize Delegation to the 62nd FIFA Congress & 2nd Medical Conference


Belize Delegation to the 62nd FIFA Congress & 2nd Medical Conference

On Monday May 21, 2012 a delegation from the Football Federation left for Budapest Hungary to attend the 62nd FIFA Congress and 2nd Medical Conference.


President Ruperto Vicente, Senior Vicente President Sergio Chuc, Executive Member Marlon Kuylen and Belmopan District Chairman Marlon Tillett are on the delegation.

A special meeting has been set to meet with high ranking FIFA Officials concerning the financial situation of the F.F.B. and Belize’s participation in the Champions League Tournament.

Belize spot in Champions League for 2012 was recently awarded to El Salvador, as the lights at the F.F.B. Stadium failed a second inspection in February of this year.  As a result Belize lost the opportunity to be reinstated in Champions League.

Works are already under-way and will keep the nation informed of its progress.
