MIAMI – Concacaf officially opened its new headquarters in downtown Miami Wednesday.

The new office, located at the 3 MiamiCentral building, 161 NW 6th St., was showcased during a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony that featured Miami mayor Francis Suarez, FIFA president Gianni Infantino, Concacaf president Victor Montagliani and general secretary Philippe Moggio, as well as Concacaf memeber association presidents, key Concacaf partners and stakeholders across the national and international football community.

“The opening of our new headquarters in Miami, Florida is quite significant for our Concacaf family, not only for the support it provides to our 41 member associations, but what is also important, it is the evidence of how Concacaf is moving forward,” Montagliani said. “It underpins the great work we are doing across the confederation and the journey that we have taken to grow football in this city and across the region.”

Added Suarez: “The City of Miami has established itself as a world-class global destination, as evidenced by the arrival of international organizations like Concacaf. Concacaf’s mission to unite diverse cultures over the game of football aligns with Miami’s position as a uniquely diverse and multicultural city.”

Said Moggio: “As Concacaf continues evolving, we have decided to take a significant step forward by moving our headquarters to the heart of Miami. This new office represents who we are, football, unity, quality and access.”

The office offers Concacaf member associations and key stakeholders a more centralized location, easier access to a major transit hub as well as other resources to support the organization’s growth and drive efficient business operations.

The headquarters houses more than 50 employees, including the General Secretariat, football, commercial, finance and administration, and legal and compliance divisions.
