TWO of the three foreign teams participating in the CONCACAF Under-17 World Cup qualifiers have complained about the Jarrett Park facility, CONCACAF president Jack Warner said yesterday.

"I've received letters from two of the countries here complaining of the Jarrett Park facility," Warner said soon after his arrival.

"They say president, I don't want you to call my name ... because I don't want Jamaica to become vexed because the hospitality is fantastic," said Warner.

Costa Rica, the United States and Honduras are the three nations, who along with hosts Jamaica, are competing in the Group A CONCACAF playoffs in the resort town.

"To get more tournaments for competitions, you have to have facilities and it boggles my mind how a country like Jamaica doesn't have more than they have at the moment," Warner said.
