Haiti - Football : Black November 11 of the FHF
The Executive Committee of the Haitian Football Federation (FHF) has lived, as the whole population the sad night of this Friday, November 11, 2011 during which the national team was prematurely eliminated from the World Cup "Brazil 2014" explains the FHF in a statement :

"...The pain was even more profound that for the first time for a long time, a Haitian selection brought together in its team so much talent and so many footballers evolving at a professional level.

The fans in their disappointment and their dismay, cited all sorts of factors explaining this outcome : some attack the coach, others cite the uniform red that the selection has adopted a certain time and which coinciding regularly with the defeat, others more indulgent highlight the series of calamities that hit the country since long.

But the football is like this because only the game and its "glorious uncertainty" explains this overwhelming ball possession (more than 70%) and these countless missed opportunities ending by a defeat, to the point of saying, that the "football is sometimes unfair."

But alongside of all this [...] the underlying reason and the great problem of the selection, have been the impossibility, due to economic problems, that the team plays its first match complete before the day of its debut in the World Cup while, provident, the FHF at the end of the 2009 Gold Cup, was sent to various sponsors and donors (over 300), a construction and preparation plan for 2014.

Football is a team game and will never be an addition of individuality and therefore, a good team takes time to mature and develop automatisms [...]

Given the situation of our country, aggravated by the January 2010 earthquake, the plan of the FHF has never had a positive result, so well, that during the years 2010 and 2011, the team has never played friendly matches to build a collective. We must not forget that 1974, was launched in October 1969, by the FHF and the State, in the aftermath of the elimination against El Salvador.

The Haitian Federation wants firstly thank all those who believed in this project and have thus revived the hopes of a possible qualification, this feeling of gratitude goes first to all our players, both those who have made the sacrifices of long travels to get back to the service of the country, those who play in the local league, that they continue to work, because the success is in the perseverance ! The FHF will give them other objectives, with the contribution of each Haitian, we will reach them.

To the sponsors Digicel, Viva Rio, ADIDAS who supported us.

A special word to His Excellency the President of the Republic, Michel Martelly, came one year too late to office, compared to the scheduled start of our campaign of preparation, also a thanks to the volunteers of the Commission of support to the campaign 2014.

To the football fans who have supported our players and who believed in them, by reminding them that a National Team is now like a club team, an institution in permanent construction and that we must arrive to a real budget, for its operation, the only guarantee to be sure to not longer know the terrible frustration to be better individually and not be able to win in the game.

Is in this spirit, that we invite the patriots and true fans of football to come, with respect, Tuesday, October 15 at the Stade Sylvio Cator for the farewell match, and repeat to these young people that the country has confidence in them.

The FHF wants that the country appreciates at its true value the dedication of these young players who made ​​us dream for 2 months and that can and must, bring us other joys in the upcoming competitions (Digicel Cup 2012, Gold cup 2013, Digicel Cup 2014, Gold cup 2015).

The national selection is young and has a great potential, us all we must support it, for the tree, which has not had time to grow for the good of all, flourish gradually.

Grenadye leve e a Laso!"
