(QCOSTARICA) — At the Costa Rica Soccer Federation (Federación Costa Rica de Fútbol – Fedefútbol) there is a lot of uncertainty, unknowns and unanswered questions, including how it will impact upcoming events.

Uncertain is who will lead the Federation and the upcoming elections of the executive committee in August, where Eduardo Li, is the first candidate, aspiring for a third consecutive term.

Now, uncertainty is the order of the day.

However, it still too early to see how this will all play out, who will rise up to place their name on the list for election.

“We have a meeting today (yesterday) where we will analyze the situation and as a body we are calling on the presidents (of the leagues) to discuss the issue and what actions to take,” said Juan Solano, president of the UNAFUT.

The Federation is made up of its members, the leagues: Unafut, Liga Aficionada, Liga de Ascenso, Fútbol playa and Fútbol Sala, that represent the teams.

“For the Federations there are no implications, it is a personal problem for Eduardo (Li) …  on a sporting level there is no problem, but in terms of image the situation is conflicting. The Federation is of all Costa Ricans and those who are here at this time have the responsibility of keeping everything working as it should,” said Jorge Hidalgo, who is now the interim president of the Federation.

According to Fedefútbol, the upcoming events are still on:

  • The Fedefútbol friendlies involving the Men’s National Team (Selección Nacional mayor)
  • The Selección game on June 6 against Colombia and on June 11 against Spain
  • The Concacaf Gold Cup in July
  • Costa Rica’s participation in the Mundial Femenino in Canada
  • The Fútbol Playa in Portugal, and
  • The Sub-17 in Chile
