NEW YORK - Jack Warner, a key ally of
FIFA president Sepp Blatter, will be re-elected as CONCACAF
president without a challenger in the North and Central American
and Caribbean region.
CONCACAF said in a statement that Trinidadian Warner, who is
a FIFA vice-president, will be re-elected formally during their
congress on May 3 in Miami.
"I am honored by the trust placed in me by our members,"
said Warner, who was originally elected President of CONCACAF in
"I thank each one of them for allowing me to continue
working on their behalf."
Three members of the CONCACAF executive committee will also
be re-elected unopposed - Lisle Austin of Barbados, Mexican
Football Federation President Justino Compean and Ariel Alvarado
Blatter and Asian football chief Mohamed Bin Hamman, his rival
in the election for FIFA president, are both likely to attend
the CONCACAF congress.
Chuck Blazer, the American general secretary of CONCACAF,
said earlier this month that he expects the confederation will
vote as a block in the FIFA presidential election in June.
