The popularity and hype of soccer has indeed reached every nook and cranny of the globe. In fact, the hype of the game triggered the sports-minded citizens of North and Central America. Its popularity also trickled down the veins of fans from the Caribbean. The adrenalin pumping excitement and the love of the game was the reason why CONCACAF was established in September 18, 1961.
CONCACAF is an acronym that stands for Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football, which is the governing body of professional football/soccer in the said areas. The role of the association is mainly to organize professional football matches for national competitions between teams and clubs. The association is also affiliated with the International Federation of Association Football or FIFA. It is the reason why CONCACAF also organizes World Cups that further brought football hype and excitement.
CONCACAF was the result of the merger of the North American Football Confederation (NAFC) and the Football Confederation of Central American and the Caribbean or more popularly called CCCF. However, it was not all easy for the association since just like any other organization, it had its own share of controversies and politics too.
To start, the organization was headed by its first President, the Costa Rican citizen Ramon Coll Jaumet and was succeeded by Joaquin Soria Terrazas, a Mexican who headed the organization for 21 years. However, it was not until the reign and leadership of Jack Warner when the organization was rocked with controversies. Firstly, alleged corruption and perhaps power struggle between the organizations ensued as one CONCACAF officer will take the side of Warner while others will side with the organization’s Secretary General Chuck Blazer. The finger pointing on who corrupted what led to the resignation of Warner, who was later succeeded by Jeffrey Web in May 2012.
The CONCACAF has 41 teams coming from 41 countries in North and Central America and the Caribbean. To be specific, there are three member teams from North America like Canada, Mexico and the United States, and seven teams from Central America like Belize, Panama, Guatemala and many others. The organization also reached 31 member countries from the Caribbean like Turks and Caicos Island, Montserrat, Grenada and many more.
There are nine founding members in 1961 such as Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, Cuba and Haiti. There are four member countries that joined in 1962 which were Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Bermuda. The newest member, on the other hand, was Bonaire who joined in 2013.
Indeed, the hype in soccer and the love of the game make member countries look forward to every CONCACAF soccer event.
