Concacaf's Warner and Blazer re-elected

[FIFA] On the eve of the FIFA Congress in the Bahamas, the Concacaf Ordinary Congress was held Monday and re-elected Concacaf President Jack Warner and General Secretary Chuck Blazer without opposition to the FIFA Executive Committee for another four years.

Warner, who was first elected to the Executive Committee in 1983, will retain his post as FIFA vice president and act as CONCACAF's Caribbean representative until 2013.  Blazer, the 64-year-old American, will return to his post as the representative from North America, a position he has held since 1996.

Warner and Blazer are considered key figures in the decision that the FIFA executive committee will make in December 2010 on the 2018 and 2022 World Cup.

U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati, Captain Horace Burrell, the former Jamaica Football Federation president, and Vice President Alfredo Hawit, the general secretary of the Honduran soccer federation, were re-elected to the CONCACAF executive committee.
