Caribbean football leader Gordon Derrick has testified at the Court of Arbitration for Sport to challenge being barred from an election to become a FIFA vice president.
CAS says a verdict in Derrick’s appeal against FIFA is expected early next year.
Derrick, the Caribbean Football Union president from Antigua, failed an eligibility test in April to be a candidate for the presidency of CONCACAF, the governing body of North and Central America and the Caribbean.
CONCACAF’s president also has FIFA vice president status and joins FIFA’s strategy-setting council.
The FIFA audit and compliance committee did not publicly specify why Derrick was barred from the vote.
