    CHIEF OFFICIAL
    Major Palavicino comes to us with an enormous amount of experience. He is a retired National Soccer Referee and current soccer teaching instructor & assessor. Some of his career highlights include officiating at three CISM Military World Games (India 2007, Brazil 2011 Finals, and South Korea 2015), professional leagues (MLS Reserve league, NASL and USDA), several CAF National & Regional Championships, Dallas Cup 26 U19, and multiple university/college leagues.

    As a CAF Sports Honour Roll Inductee and with over 35 years of soccer officiating experience under his belt we have no doubt that Major Palavicino will excel in his new role as the CAF Soccer Chief Official.

    Rear-Admiral C.F. Sutherland

    PATRON
    Rear-Admiral (RAdm) Sutherland is the Deputy Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy with vast experience successfully executing Command and General/Flag officer staff positions, holding significant positions of responsibility.  He is a highly intelligent, thoughtful, and empathetic leader in the Canadian Armed Forces.  

    “I am humbled, honoured and delighted to have been appointed as your CAF Men’s Soccer patron.  I am an ardent supporter of CAF sports because it has been a large part of my life and I credit it as an important part in my success and ability to overcome personal and professional challenges. I believe fervently in the impact sports have in every facet of our personal and professional lives.  

    Participating as part of a structured soccer team helped me develop the framework to understand the importance of teamwork, practice, goal setting, preparation, perseverance, strength, morals and values, endurance, mental strength, patience, confidence, responsibility, accountability, focus, respect, and humility.  These virtues were foundational to my professionally demanding career in the CAF.  More importantly, those virtues helped me overcome significant challenges and failures personally and professionally. 

    I am excited to engage with all of you to exchange ideas and improve our program, the CAF, our culture, and our personal well-being.”
