Revamp ‘part of vision’ to improve


THE PRESIDENT of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) wants to revamp its competition structure to give more games to smaller nations.

Victor Montagliani, who is also a FIFA vice president, made the revelation during a press conference at the Barbados Football Association’s (BFA) Wildey headquarters on Saturday.

“Part of my vision is to revamp the competition structure, which is holding on [BFA] president [Randy] Harris and his team to get more games. It’s about how CONCACAF has done their competitions.

“How we’ve done it in the past, I don’t believe, is good enough [to give] accessibility to the smaller and medium-sized nations. For the bigger nations like USA and Mexico, they play a lot because it’s easier for them to do that, but the confederation will only get better if everybody else gets better,” he said. (RA)
