ALL too predictably, Trinidad and Tobago’s World Cup campaign has come to a sad and ragged end. Being eliminated in the very first round of the competition was a first for the Soca Warriors in a long time. That their exit came against the lowly Bahamas team was salt in the wound for a team which, in 2006, had won global admiration as the smallest country ever to make it into the World Cup finals.
THE FIFA-appointed normalisation committee, headed by Robert Hadad, said it has been trying its best to ensure the T&T Football Association (TTFA) has been running smoothly by providing salaries to all stakeholders and reducing debt.
After receiving a promise that salaries and wages owed to them will be paid at the end of the month (May), president of the National Football Coaches of T&T (NFCTT) Jefferson George said the coaches are looking forward to Tuesday's payment.
FRESH kits for the national men’s football team were unveiled on Friday as a part of the partnership between the Miami-based sports brand BOL and the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA), which was announced earlier this year.
Minister of Sports and Community Development Shamfa Cudjoe has said her government’s focus right now is not to try and clear or repay any debt of the T&T Football Association.
NATIONAL team coaches have been told to wait another week for payment of outstanding salaries, the Fifa-appointed normalisation committee not having met the May month-end promise it issued a few weeks ago.
Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Senior Team head coach Terry Fenwick will have just four days to prepare his outfit for their next Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifying fixture, after the Fifa-appointed normalisation committee rejected his request for an eight-day overseas camp.
Discussions to treat with the possible overlapping by goalkeeper coach Kelvin Jack with different national teams, will begin when a joint press conference of the Unified Football Coaches of T&T (UFCTT) and the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee is held sometime soon.
A response by the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee (NC) on Tuesday to concerns raised by the T&T Football Association’s (TTFA) membership on May 1, appeared to have raised more questions than it provided answers.
