CEBU Football Association gets the ball rolling as it sets its plans for the first year of term in office.
In last Thursday’s meeting, heads of the committees on technical development and membership, discipline and security, grounds, tournament and referee presented their plans to the board for approval.
It was the first board meeting after they were finally recognized by the Philippine Football Federation.
“The committee heads had presented different activities that will release the direction for Cebu football,” said CFA vice president Rico Navarro.
Navarro added that after plotting the plans, the next step is to get the people who will make up the committee. These people do not necessarily have to be members of the CFA.
“The committee members need not come from the CFA, but they will be headed by the CFA committee chair,” he added.
One of the major plans on the agenda was that of the tournament committee, which already mapped out the schedules of the tournaments that will happen in Cebu for the entire year.
Navarro said one of the reasons this was hastened is to precents conflicts in schedules of tournaments.
Meanwhile, the the membership committee was tasked to classify member clubs and finalize the list and attend to those who wish to apply for accreditation with the CFA.
But on top of CFA’s priority as of the moment is the Azkals friendly match at Cebu City Sports Center on Nov. 15. This plan was officially endorsed before the board.
The turnover of materials, financial documents and equipment from the previous board to the new one will be on July 10 with the presence of former president Richard Montayre and representatives of the new board.
CFA president Pericles “Ricky” Dakay also confirmed his attendance in the Philippine Football Federation Board of Governors meeting on July 14.
The formal induction of officers will be set after the BOG meeting between July and August to be witnessed by PFF President Mariano “Nonong” Araneta.
The group will try to have it in their new office, which is currently undergoing renovations.
