FIFA reminds ex-TTFA body it is no longer allowed to conduct affairs

The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) has written to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) once again reiterating that the body is no longer in charge of matters related to the sport.

In a statement, FIFA said it received information that a letter dated April 16, was sent to National Security Minister Stuart Young by a former member of the TTFA, perpetuating to be legitimate authorities.

However, on March 17, the Bureau of the FIFA Council appointed a normalisation committee to take over the TTFA’s affairs in accordance with article 8, paragraph 2 of the FIFA Statutes.

“This letter seems to allege that Mr William Wallace, Mr Clynt Taylor, Ms Susan Joseph Warrick and Mr Joseph Sam Phillip continue to be members of the Executive Committee of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and that the normalisation committee led by Mr. Robert Hadad has no legal or other standing in Trinidad and Tobago.”

Reminding of the move, the federation highlighted that the only legitimate leadership of the TTFA, recognised by FIFA and Concacaf, is the one led by Robert Hadad. As such, it urged that all communication regarding the sport be discussed with the only functional executive. 

“Having said this, any type of discussion regarding the use of Home of Football or any other football-related topic should be handled with Mr. Robert Hadad.”

“Finally, we kindly request that you communicate the foregoing to the relevant authorities and keep us closely informed on further developments regarding the matter.”
