TT FOOTBALL Association (TTFA) president David John-Williams, who is seeking another term, has announced his slate for the association's upcoming elections on November 24.
The visit by the Presidents of FIFA and CONCACAF to Trinidad for the opening of the Home of Football and the fact that the hosts for the 2026 World Cup are between 3 nations from CONCACAF, presents many great opportunities. Most importantly, it can be used as a catalyst to ensure a steady growth path towards the region possessing more formidable oppositions in world football. The next bold step for regional football leaders should be to lobby the region's governing body to assist in offering more playing opportunities for its own, as those for example of the EU region. The players are ultimately the most important resource of the game meaning a higher standard must be attained to be respected.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino will attend the official opening ceremony of the Home of Football in Balmain, Couva on November 18.
