Silence from Concacaf persists over Montserrat cancellation

Concacaf has yet to reveal why Bermuda’s Nations League group B match against Montserrat has been cancelled.

The Bermuda Football Association released a statement on Thursday in which it had been notified by Concacaf to confirm the match, scheduled to be at the Flora Duffy Stadium on Tuesday, would no longer be played.

“The Montserrat Football Association has unfortunately decided to withdraw from the match No 65 of the Concacaf Nations League group stage originally scheduled on Tuesday, June 14 in Bermuda,” read the BFA statement. “Consequently, and in accordance with the competition regulations, the Concacaf Disciplinary Committee will evaluate the situation and take the final decision of the outcome of the match and notify both member associations accordingly”.

The Royal Gazette made numerous attempts to contact Concacaf but no comment has been forthcoming from the organisation as yet.

Meanwhile the BFA has reiterated its stance on waiting for official communication from Concacaf before making comment on the matter, having previously said: “The BFA looks forward to receiving the adjudication from the Concacaf Disciplinary Committee where we await full disclosure of the circumstances that have led to the cancellation of the match.”

The association has also confirmed that fans who have purchased tickets for the fixture will receive a full refund through the ptix.bm website.

Kyle Lightbourne’s side are in the Dominican Republic preparing to face Montserrat today.
