Sponsors Unsure About Future TTFF Relationship
« on: February 11, 2012, 01:54:25 PM »
What little corporate involvement with TTFF there was is now in serious doubt of continuing.

Sponsors unsure about TTFF
T&T Newsday reports.


LOCAL CORPORATE bodies Carib Brewery Limited and Blink/Bmobile are both unsure of their future involvement with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF), following a levy order taken by 13 Soca Warriors players against the local governing body last Wednesday.

Colin Murray, sponsorship and events manager of Carib, noted, “Carib’s deal with the national team came to an end at the end of the World Cup campaign. At this point in time, we really don’t have a deal per se with the TTFF.”

However, Murray was asked if Carib may renew their deal with the Federation.

“Nothing has been confirmed as yet,” he said. “It’s too early to say what we’re doing or what we’re not doing.

“All we know is what we’re reading in the papers or seeing in the news. At this point in time, we really don’t have much to say on this issue.”

He continued, “we don’t know what is happening with the TTFF, what is the next step from the players. As a sponsor, we’re waiting to see what unfolds. And we really can’t comment until there’s a clearer picture to the way forward.”

Camille Salandy, head of public relations and external affairs at Blink/Bmobile, was asked if the telecommunications group will be continuing their sponsorship with TTFF. “That’s much too early to tell,” she responded. “We cannot give an official comment at this time.”

Ain't that the truth. But, the more the TTFF is dependent on government funding the closer they get to violating the FIFA statutes that touch upon undue influence of third parties. One way or another, the days of these jokers are numbered.

Too early to tell?  Why don't they concentrate their time on finding out where their previous funds went to?

Colin Murray in particular should be asking "How, if we gave you $10 million in 2005, does only $3 million appear in your accounts?"

I would imagine that this is some kind of fraud against Carib, so why don't they apply some pressure?

If Carib is really a supporter of National Football as they claim, this includes a moral obligation to the people of T&T.

Easy there hero... sponsors pay for advertising, what the TTFF does with the money is not their concern.

I hear you. However, its not a positive vibe to be connected with, and although it could be said thats its better to let it lie, it could also be good P.R. at this time to support transparency and the "people's heroes"!

If the current TTFF administration really care about T&T football like they claim, they would resign en masse and call for elections immediately to allow a new beginnning.  The longer they remain in leadership provides evidence that they really only care about their own egos nd their own pockets.
To Watson and Co: Do the right thing! Give it up!
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!

Yeah, can't disagree with anything you said.
