Time to blow out the candles...

Following a great dinner at The Dutch, a hot New York eatery at 131 Sullivan Street in SOHO, it was time for Guillermo CaƱedo White to blow out the candles on his birthday cake. Accompanied by his wife Adriana and their 3 sons, Mary Lynn and I had a great time introducing them to one of the city's 'top ten' restaurants.

FIFA Players' Status Committee

1. The Players’ Status Committee shall set up and monitor compliance with the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players and determine the status of Players for various FIFA competitions. Its powers of jurisdiction are governed by the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

2. It shall also be responsible for the work of the Dispute Resolution Chamber in accordance with the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players and the Rules Governing the Procedures of the Players’ Status Committee and the Dispute Resolution Chamber.

Theo Zwanziger takes the chair for the first time. In addition, six new members were added to the committee, meeting for the first time since appointments were made in December. Geoff Thompson and myself, immediate past chairman and deputy chair respectively, were designated as Single Judges to handle routine cases on an individual basis for the upcoming term. Both Geoff and myself have served in that capacity already and appreciate the confidence of the committee, having now been formally re-appointed by the new chairman.
