Meeting with the Prime Minister of Bahamas...

Chuck Blazer presents the Honorable Hubert A. Ingraham, Prime Minister of the Bahamas, with a music box and a medal during the visit of the Bahamas Football Association to the head of Government to discuss the FIFA Congress which will take place at the end of May 2009.

The Prime Minister was very supportive as the group which included President Anton Sealey, Vice President Fred Lunn, Jr. and Bahamas Football General Secretary Lionel Haven, was accompanied by FIFA Executive Member and CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer, discussed the elements of the FIFA Congress as memorialized in a DVD by Football Australia of the recent FIFA Congress in Syndey. Prime Minister Ingraham was very enthusiastic and told us we would have his and the Government's full support.

In order to get a head start on next year's Congress, the Prime Minister has scheduled a meeting of Ministers of Government with the Bahamas Football delegation and Blazer on August 7th.

The group was very encouraged by the Prime Minister's direction and looked forward to the August meeting as an important next step.
