The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) has offered an “update” on the state of construction at its Home of Football project, just 24 hours before what is likely to be a heated AGM at the Cycling Centre in Couva.
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association will host a three-day workshop in collaboration with UEFA which will focus on the Overview of Football in Trinidad and Tobago, the structure of the FA and a proposed plan for the T&T Pro League.
“Mr President, for two reconvened meetings for the continuation of the November 2017 AGM—January 9th and […] March 17th—you, as Chairman, proceeded, on you own accord to abort the meetings and to announce an adjournment for ‘the lack of a quorum.’
Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) board member Keith Look Loy has accused president David John-Williams of financial irresponsibility and violating the local football body’s governing structure. The charges come in response to the TTFA’s announcement of its intention to host women’s senior team competitions in April and May.
The silence is deafening these days regarding the the aborted Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the TTFA last week.
“There is a feeling among members that it cannot be ‘business as usual’ if the affairs of the organisation continue to be in a state of abeyance.”
It's now a race against time unknown before the T&T Football Association (TTFA) faces sanctions from the world governing body for football - (The Federation of International Football Associations -FIFA), for its inability to submit audited financial statements for the year 2016 in time.
The constitutional impasse between Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president David John-Williams and the general membership appeared to take another convoluted turn on Friday, as FIFA deputy secretary general Zvonimir Boban offered a learned opinion on the issue.
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association’s fourth successive attempt to hold its 2017 AGM ended in farce and a shouting match today in Couva, as local football president David John-Williams adjourned the meeting for 14 days in an apparent misinterpretation of the constitution and amidst cries of “tyranny” and “dictatorship.”
