November 1, 2011
FIFA, the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) and the Ministry of Sports after much discussion and consideration, have agreed to extend the present deadlines contained in the “FIFA Roadmap to solve the current crisis in Belize football”.

Based on the fact that the Members (i.e. seven football districts and the Top League) of the FFB are still in the process of ratifying their own statutes, and taking into consideration the fact that after these statutes are ratified, there are certain timelines for the proper announcement and organization of these Member elections, it has been agreed that the deadline for the election of new executives for the Members be extended to December 31st, 2011.

Once Member elections have been completed, it will then be necessary to adhere to the election timelines for the FFB executive as outlined in the newly approved FFB Statutes. As a result, the deadline for the election of the FFB executive committee has been extended to March 10th, 2012.
