THE funeral service for Oliver Camps, former president of the TT Football Federation, will take place on Tuesday at St Finbar's Roman Catholic Church, Morne Coco Road, Diego Martin, at 10.30 am.
Camps died at 87 on New Year's Day at the St Clair Medical Centre. Camps served TT football in many capacities as he was also manager of both the 1973 and 1989 (Strike Squad) national football teams who both narrowly missed out on World Cup qualification. He was president of the TTFF when the Soca Warriors qualified for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
Since his death, a number of people in the football fraternity have paid tribute to Camps including former vice-president of FIFA Jack Warne, ex-TT football manager Bruce Aanensen, and a number of former national players who Camps interacted with over decades. Warner, who was a close friend of Camps, is expected to deliver the eulogy.
