The Secondary Schools Football League, under the leadership of President William Wallace will host a one-day Stakeholders Forum on Saturday February 24th at the National Cycling Velodrome in Couva.

The day’s proceedings starts at 9:30am, going until 4pm and is aimed at encouraging inclusive cooperation and greater dialogue among football stakeholders and key people in the local football landscape including fans.

“We are excited to host the forum as part of a commitment encouraging more collaborations, dialogue and inclusions of key stakeholders in advancing the Secondary Schools Football League and addressing issues that need to be looked at,” SSFL Presdient Wallace said.

“As an Organisation and a League, we are totally against an organisation such as the SSFL operating in a vacuum but rather in a business environment, which is comprised of different stakeholders, some of which are internal and others external; having the capacity to influence the organisation in one way or the other. We want to encourage a level of influence which in the long run can play a key part  in determining a level of success for the League, our teams, players and by extension football in Trinidad and Tobago,” Wallace added.

There will be discussions dedicated to topics such as development, refereeing, coach education, student athlete policy among other items. And there will also be an open forum segment.
