Marlon Kuylen’s Parting Shot on the State of Affairs at the F.F.B.

Marlon Kuylen

Acting President Marlon Kuylen will not be contesting the seat for the highest office in national football next month.  It’s a decision that he says was fairly easy to make given the present climate surrounding the administration of the sport at the level of the Football Federation of Belize.  In a lengthy document released to the media earlier today, Kuylen touched on a number of issues affecting the state of football in Belize, beginning with the structure of the organization.  According to Kuylen, the statutes and codes governing the F.F.B. are also in need of thorough revision and amendments.  The acting president goes on to say that the organization has been run without a clear plan of action which has had its effect on the playing field where it concerns the national team’s international appearance.  Perhaps, at the heart of Kuylen’s exposé is his revelation that under the presidency of Ruperto Vicente, six dubious contracts were purportedly signed to ensure that his so-called loyalists remain employed with the federation long after his term had ended.  It’s an extensive essay that delves into his personal history with football, as well as the direction of the sport in Belize.  Click here to read the entire article.
