While speaking with FFB President Ruperto Vicente on football matters, we also got to ask the president about their financial status now being at the end of the 2018 World Cup experience. After the last world cup, the Football Federation of Belize encountered some financial difficulties in paying their players. What’s more, ,there was a large amount of money that went unaccounted for during the 2013 World Cup Experiences. It cast a dark shadow on the federation, however, Ruperto says they have since tightened some loose bolts and assures the general public that there will be no repetition of the past.
Well I heard the National team Director, the Hon. John Saldivar, speaking to our finance director just last week and saying to him that we need a finance report immediately so that we can report to the public on what it has cost us to finance our national team. So, I believe that he is working on that right away and that is going to be presented to the public. So, we are on top of things We don’t want to make the same mistakes we’ve made before. You know, there were somemistakes made and we must admit that we have made mistakes but we promise he public that we will not make those mistakes again.
