FIFA Adamant CAS Must Decide TTFA Appeal


(Trinidad Guardian) Despite having a judgement against them in the T&T’s High Court in Port-of-Spain on August 13, football’s world governing body FIFA remains adamant the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne Switzerland, will be the jurisdiction for the T&T Football Association for the right to appoint a Normalisation Committee to govern the affairs of football in the twin-island Republic.

It means, however, that T&T will be on the verge expected sanctions, should the CAS not be chosen to resolve the matter.
