Former FIFA VP Jack Warner, CONCACAF In Legal Battle Over Center Of Excellence
Published April 18, 2014
Former FIFA VP Jack Warner insisted that "he will fight legal action challenging his ownership of a luxurious centre of excellence in Trinidad built with FIFA money," according to the PA. The Joao Havelange center was constructed through grants totaling as much as £15.5M ($26M) from FIFA and the North American governing body CONCACAF, "but it emerged two years ago that Warner was the owner of the land on which it was built." CONCACAF "has now filed a legal action in Trinidad, known as a caveat, which seeks to block Warner from mortgaging, leasing or selling the centre" (PA, 4/16).
