Nominations for the posts within CFU’s executive committee closed at 4 pm on Monday (20th Dec), with Warner and all the incumbent members being nominated unchallenged.
The CFU is the governing body for Caribbean football and comprises 30 member countries, all of whom compete in CONCACAF, the governing body for the North, Central America and Caribbean areas.
In accepting the new nomination, Warner, who is also Minister of Works in the Trinidad and Tobago government, cautioned against division, while urging the CFU body to continue to its strong progress in developing football.
“As we embark on a journey for the next four years, the task ahead of us is challenging and we the members of this Committee need all hands on deck, all talent, all wisdom, each and everyone must take an active part in guiding our Union to a better tomorrow,” Warner said.
Warner, who has served as CFU president since the organisation’s inception 18 years ago, described the overwhelming mandate given him as “humbling and invigorating”
He said that for 40 years of his life he served football, but he cannot and will never personalize the sequence of events.
