Basseterre,St.Kitts October 3 2020 (SKNVIBES)

PRESIDENT of the St. Kits and Nevis Football Association, Anthony Johnson said the rules set out by the international governing body for the sport is clearly stated and the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) breached those regulations.

In responding to a question at a SKNFA press conference about the suspension of the TTFA, President Johnson explained that the sister organisation breached the policy of not challenging the international organisation in local courts.The executive of the TTFA filed several challenges in the High Court Committee to run the affairs of football in the twin-island nation.

FIFA took that position after its team found several irregularities following a visit to the island.“The decision follows the recent FIFA/CONCACAF fact-finding mission to Trinidad and Tobago to assess, together with an independent auditor, the financial situation of TTFA. The mission found that extremely low overall financial management methods, combined with massive debt, have resulted in the TTFA facing a very real risk of insolvency and illiquidity.
