The PDP is proud of the GFA’s futsal squad on its historic achievement at the UEFA Euro 2014 preliminaries for their 7-5 win against San Marino and for their best efforts against the other stronger teams of France and Montenegro. Congratulations and what a great way to set out on the road to full membership. It is unfortunate yet unsurprising that Spain has immediately announced again its intention to take whatever legal action necessary to block Gibraltar’s membership.
We therefore welcome greatly the extremely positive strides made by the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) in becoming fully fledged UEFA members despite all the odds. The PDP offers its support in this endeavour and wishes the GFA the best of luck in the UEFA Congress where the GFA’s rightful place within the European football family will be decided on.
The PDP is also excited to know that both Gibraltar’s U19 and U17 squads will be competing against other European nations in their respective UEFA competitions. It is high time our developing players should be given this exposure to further their footballing dreams.
CTS (Gibraltar) Limited
The Gibraltar Regulatory Authority has removed CTS (Gibraltar) Limited from the Register of Authorisations maintained under the provisions of the Communications Act 2006 and has directed CTS to refrain from operating a mobile telephony network and fixed radiocommunications link.
The Direction, issued today, follows CTS’s failure to renew two licences and pay the statutory fees. In February 2012, the Minister for Communications issued a notification requiring that the fees be recovered as a debt. A penalty for non-payment of the fees was subsequently imposed on CTS by the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority.
Anne Mesilio has dropped us another email with an update on the progress of the Special Olympics Team.
We have started a week of exciting competitions at the 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
