CIFA presidential candidates in their own words

L-R: Renard Moxam, Lee Ramoon, Alfredo Whittaker.

On Saturday, 18 November, the membership of the Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) will decide who should lead the national body for the islands’ most popular sport for the next two years.

The incumbent is Lee Ramoon has been involved in local football for the past three decades, first as a star player and captain of the national side and has since moved into coaching and administration.

Ramoon took over as president in May 2016 in an election brought on by the lifetime ban placed on the previous post-holder, Jeffrey Webb, who has been mired in controversy for his admitted role in corruption that plagued the sport internationally.

In that election, Ramoon edged Alfredo Whittaker for the top post. Whittaker, a seasoned match official who has served as the head of refereeing in the Caribbean, is again in the running to be president.

Also seeking to take the top post is Renard Moxam, a businessman who was also a star national player and became the Cayman Islands’ first professional footballer in 1979 when he was signed by the Toronto Blizzard Soccer Club in the North American Soccer League.

CaymanSportsBuzz.com sat down with the three candidates about their plans to take CIFA and football in the Cayman Islands forward. Listen to them below in their own words.
