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.

FIFA in March, replaced the United TTFA with a normalization committee, citing management flaws that were steering the association into insolvency, with no way to clearing its debt which FIFA estimated at US$37.4 million.

In its response on Thursday, FIFA has outlined 12 grounds for appeal which includes articles 67 of FIFA statutes which it states that (a) That provisions of Article 67 of the Respondent’s Constitution were void and (b) It was outwith the jurisdiction of the Respondent, as an entity incorporated under Trinidad and Tobago legislation, to agree to submit to foreign law as FIFA statues prescribe.
