The Supreme Court ruled in favour of the decision made by the Board of the Jamaica Football Federation not to grant affiliate status to the Pat Garel led Beach Soccer Jamaica, on Friday.
The court denied the application for the continuation of the temporary injunction of the election on the basis that Beach Soccer Jamaica failed to establish that they were members or affiliate of the jff and as such there was no serious issue to tried by the court.
President of the JFF, Michael Ricketts, says he’s not surprised that the court has denied the application for the continuation of the temporary injunction on the election of the federation.
The JFF voting congress was originally scheduled for Ruseas’ High School on January 14.
However, it was postponed by 28 days after president of Beach Soccer Jamaica, Patricia Gael, filed an application in the Supreme Court seeking an order to compel the JFF to allow Beach Soccer to participate in the upcoming election of officers as the entity representing beach football in Jamaica.
However, the court ruled that applicant did not establish that they are an affiliate or member of the JFF and as such there is no serious issue to be tried by the court.
Ricketts says they have been vindicated.
He says within 14 days the JFF will be calling an emergency meeting to rescheduled the elections.
Ricketts says they have been open with CONCACAF and FIFA.
