Fenafuth responded: “As you are aware, the Municipal Mayor’s Office of the Central District has granted the use, enjoyment or usufruct of the Birichiche stadium and the Children’s stadium through a fair document and for an indefinite period, in the use of its legal powers and unanimously approved by votes. The property known as the Birichiche is an ejido property and for this reason the Mayor’s Office granted the concession and legal administration to Fenafuth since 2006”.
In addition, they stated: “We reiterate our concern since depriving the Federation of a property built with FIFA funds constitutes a clear interference by the Government in the activities of the Federation and in assets provided by FIFA. This is considered a clear interference in the administrative functions of a property that has been administered by Fenafuth, where funds granted by FIFA have been invested and which are stadiums used exclusively for the development of the different minor leagues in Tegucigalpa attached to our Federation. ”.
