Money is coming to the country’s top football clubs. But they will have to account for how they use every cent Valium.
The Trinidad and Tobago Pro League and new Minister of Sport Shamfa Cudjoe met face-to-face yesterday, and acting League chairman Richard Fakoory is hopeful that clubs will start receiving their monthly subventions of $50,000 from the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT)as early as next month.
Fakoory described yesterday’s meeting as “very fruitful.” Prior to that, League officials had been in the dark over how the $11.1 million Government allocation over three years—as announced in the Senate by Minister Cudjoe on April 26—and more specifically the $4.8m for this season would be apportioned. But yesterday, Fakoory confirmed the funds would be distributed to the clubs and not the League.
