KINGSTON, Jamaica -- FIFA vice-president and Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) president Jeffrey Webb says plans are afoot to expand the hosting of the Gold Cup to the Caribbean region.
The Gold Cup is the top tournament in the region and is hosted only in the United States which has the best facilities in the confederation.
But Webb who was guest at the Jamaica Observer’s weekly Monday Exchange today said that widening the pool of countries that host the tournament would provide a fillip for football facilities in the Caribbean.
“We must start to expand the Gold Cup. What it is going to do is force governments to improve their infrastructure. From a future standpoint that’s definitely in our plans,” Webb told reporters and editors.
