Three-way race for CIFA presidency

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

Incumbent Lee Ramoon faces two challengers for the upcoming election for president of the Cayman Islands Football Association.

The 52-year-old former national player was elected in May 2016 to take over the helm of the CIFA in an election to replace Jeffery Webb, who was banned from all footballing activities due to his role in the widespread international corruption in the sport.

At the 2016 election, Ramoon edged Alfredo Whittaker for the post. Whittaker, best known as a FIFA referee, is once again challenging for the post.

Joining them in the race is another legend of local football – Renard Moxam, who tried unsuccessfully to run for the 1st Vice President post two years ago. His bid was thwarted when the CIFA Executive Committee ruled it did not meet the requirements at that time. Moxam was at the time Director of National Teams but was removed from that position shortly afterward.

The confirmed list of nominations was circulated to member clubs on Friday ahead of the CIFA Annual Congress on 18 November, although the candidates have been lobbying members for support in recent weeks. has interviews scheduled with the three nominees for president of the local football body and, in the coming days, will present their plans to take the association and the sport forward.

Meantime, there are three candidates running for the position of 2nd Vice President held by Peter Campbell, who is not seeking re-election. They are Dion Brandon, Elton Kenroy Martin and Antwan Seymour.

Wendy Fisher is unopposed to continue as Deputy General Secretary. The other executive committee positions are not up for election this year.

Editor’s note: an earlier version had an error with the name of one of the candidates for vice president. We apologise for the error and wish Mr Martin all the best with his election bid.
