Soccer federation to resume operations
01/05/2013 - Between today and tomorrow, Panamanian soccer federation Fepafut will resume operations.
The federation had its operations halted last week when a court ordered its bank accounts frozen due to a dispute with its main sponsor, Cervecería Barú Panamá. The brewery withdrew its request, however, when pressured by the government.
The dispute arose after Fepafut ended its eended its association with the brewery in favor of another sponsor. The brewery has sought a repayment as outlined in the contract between the two entities.
Helene Weesie, the brewery general manager, said that it withdrew the measure to help the national team continue to prepare for qualifying for the World Cup.
The two sides are still working to resolve the outstanding issues.
