Three of FIFA’s most powerful men, President Sepp Blatter, presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam and Vice-President and would-be “king maker” Jack Warner face the Ethics Committee Sunday in Zurich, Switzerland while a fourth, Executive Committee member and CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer, can feasibly sink one, two or all three parties or even go down in flames himself.
FIFA vice-president Jack Warner said yesterday that his Jack will not be hung and declared that the world should brace for a "football tsunami" over the next couple of days.
Former English Football Association chairman David Triesman has accused FIFA executive committee members Jack Warner, Ricardo Teixeira, Nicolas Leoz and Worawi Makudi of asking for favours in return for their votes for England's 2018 World Cup bid.
The extraordinary allegations will throw the presidential race into chaos just a week before the presidential vote in Zurich and threaten a schism in the governing body.
FIFA executive committee member Jack Warner has hit back at the allegations of corruption from former Football Association chairman Lord Triesman.
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation is inviting all local referees to complete its registration with the local governing body (TTFF) in a move that will permit them to officiate in matches under the auspices of the TTFF.
Warner said on CCN TV6's Morning Edition programme yesterday that things are looking up for local football.
Mayday...Mayday...Mayday...!” This may well be the cry from the office of the T&T Football Federation (TTFF) with May 16 looming large.
Bin Hammam arrived in Trinidad by private jet yesterday morning in a delegation of seven, including three other members of the FIFA executive committee, ahead of today's meeting.
