NEW YORK – CONCACAF will finally get a new president in May.
The confederation will hold a congress in conjunction with the annual FIFA Congress in Budapest, Hungary on May 23, CONCACAF announced Friday.
The gathering of national association delegates, to be conducted at the Boscolo New York Palace a day before the start of the two-day FIFA congress, will elect a new president to complete the term of Jack Warner.
Warner, whose term was to run through 2015, resigned last June 20 as he was implicated for his alleged invovlement in the FIFA presidential bribery scandal in 2011. Warner also stepped down from his role as FIFA vice president.
The confederation has been without a president since Warner’s resignation.
CONCACAF member associations can nominate candidates for the office up to 60 days before the CONCACAF Congress, March 25.
