ZÜRICH – The Executive Board of the St. Maarten Soccer Association (SMSA), represented by President Sudesh Singh and General Secretary Danaë Daal, traveled to Switzerland on Wednesday, February 24, to take part in the CONCACAF and FIFA Congresses held on Thursday, February 25, and Friday, February 26.
The CONCACAF Extraordinary Congress took place on Thursday, February 24, and members voted on reforms, including revisions to CONCACAF’s statutes. The meeting was successful and the new revised Statutes were approved by the members.
On Friday, February 26, St. Maarten will also be present for the FIFA Extraordinary Congress. During this Congress, members of FIFA will also vote on the new draft FIFA Statutes, which include essential principles of the proposed reforms that will strengthen how international Football is governed.
Also, during this highly publicized event, a new FIFA President will be elected. Currently St. Maarten is only a member of CONCACAF and not of FIFA. One of the main goals of the SMSA is to initiate this process and apply for membership.
