COSSAN and UES refine details about the Central American and Caribbean Village

Dinora Acevedo, general director of the Organizing Committee of the Central American and Caribbean Games San Salvador 2023, made a presentation to the authorities of the University of El Salvador (UES) on the general aspects as an important advance in the organization of the regional competition, after confirming the Alma Mater as a Sports Village.

During the meeting, the director of COSSAN explained that for the Central American and Caribbean Games, an estimated 5,000 to 5,500 athletes are expected to participate.

 “What we did is to present to the different work areas of the University of El Salvador the general aspects of the games. We already have a confirmed date and this is an important piece of information for them so that they can program the interventions and the time in which the campus would have to be handed over. We talked about the different commissions that must be worked and how each one of the faculties or schools of the university not only can integrate their students, but also their professionals to be part of the organization of this great event,” said Acevedo.

El Salvador will host the Central American and Caribbean Games for the third time in its history, after organizing the 1935 and 2002 San Salvador Games.

 “We reviewed plans and initial proposals for the intervention of the university spaces such as the villa in the area of dormitories and the adaptation of bathrooms. There are also other facilities that the university should offer such as dining rooms, recreation areas, the international zone, parking and all this has been the initial proposal that, as COSSAN, we have and the information that we have provided has been reacted very positively, with great willingness to collaborate with us. What now corresponds is to establish work tables so that each of these issues raised are refined and the work proposals are of common agreement,” said the director of COSSAN.

The meeting was attended by Juan Rosa Quintanilla, administrative vice-rector of UES; Rafael Peña, UES prosecutor and the different heads of the higher education center.

Also in attendance were: Natalia Méndez, head of the Legal Unit of COSSAN; Roberto Calderón, legal manager of INDES; Juan José Gómez, administrative manager of INDES and representatives of the Infrastructure Department of the National Sports Institute of El Salvador.

“It is a fact that the university will be the Central American and Caribbean Sports Village; we already have the approval of Centro Caribe Sports, it has already been accepted and we only have to fine tune the legal part, the agreements and the annexes that this will imply,” Acevedo emphasized.

For his part, Juan Rosa Quintanilla, administrative vice rector of the UES, confirmed the willingness of the university to join the sports project that will allow the Alma Mater to return to be Sports Village for the second time in its history after San Salvador 2002.

We are willing to support this initiative and are satisfied with the effort we are making as institutions so that the country can carry out a sporting project of great magnitude and be recorded in history as one of the best,” Quintanilla said.

We already had an experience in 2002 and we believe that 20 years later we have developed an experience that allows us, to a great extent, to contribute to the development of this important project for the Salvadoran youth and that we will be benefited in the adaptation of sports spaces for our university community and to be able to develop after this the Central American University Sports Games, of which the country is the headquarters”, added the administrative vice-rector of the UES.

The Central American and Caribbean Games will be held from June 23 to July 8, 2023 and the commitment between both institutions will be ratified with the subsequent signing of the agreement.

 “We are grateful for the attention given to us by the rector of the University of El Salvador and the attention given to us by the engineer Juan Rosa as administrative vice rector of the University of El Salvador as Villa Centroamericana. Now there is only hard work to do the verification for the adequacy of the infrastructure of the university, obviously this brings benefits to the university community, that involves remodeling the university in every way, “said Roberto Calderon, legal manager of INDES.

The commitment entrusted to us by the president ad honorem of INDES, Yamil Bukele, is to guarantee good attention to all the delegations that will visit us and there will be 37 Olympic representations, this is one of the events at regional level and El Salvador will be the center of attention at regional level next year,” added Calderon.
