F.F.B. Prez Sergio Chuc is Appointed to CONCACAF Council

On Saturday, the thirty-eight CONCACAF Ordinary Congress was held in Antigua, Guatemala with delegates from its forty-one member associations, council members and guests from the global football community. While the congress saw the unanimous re-election of Victor Montagliani as President of the Confederation for another four-year term, F.F.B. President Sergio Chuc was soon after elected to sit as the Council member for Central America. It’s the highest position ever held by a Belizean in the CONCACAF organization, which governs football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean. News Five spoke with Chuc this afternoon about what led to his appointment to the decision-making body.

Sergio Chuc, Appointed Member, CONCACAF Council

“I think it is mainly because of the focus that we’ve done on grassroots football. Basically grassroots is dealing with the roots from six years right up to thirteen and then we start with the competitions. Six and thirteen we just giving them the basics, letting them fall in love with the game, and then after that, we start competitions which are in the thirteen-year-olds the fifteen-year-olds, the seventeen-year-olds and we are doing it with both males and females. And quite frankly they’ve expressed to me that they have been impressed about the way how we have been managing the funds and we have been having all these tournaments. It is something that the other regions have not capitalised as we have and because they have seen the work we have put in, I think that has bring some confidence to Belize. And I am happy that they have appointed me, but I look at more as the work that Belize is doing because the truth of the matter is that I am just the head of the organization, but all the hard work is being done by the secretariat – the general secretary, the technical director who has been doing a wonderful job, the competition director, the director of communications and marketing.”
