Trinidad and Tobago Suspended by FIFA. (See why)

FIFA has suspended Trinidad and Tobago from international football after its football association (TTFA) pursued a dispute through the country’s High Court in contravention of the world governing body’s statutes.
FIFA in a statement said Trinidad and Tobago were issued a Sept. 16 deadline to withdraw the case which was extended to Sept. 23 before the decision was taken to suspend the TTFA.
The TTFA and FIFA have been at loggerheads since March after the world governing body dissolved the executive of the cash-strapped association, NAN reports.
FIFA had installed a normalisation committee after they concluded the TTFA’s former leadership had “engaged in various acts of serious mismanagement”.
This was opposed by TTFA president, William Wallace and contested in court.
“The suspension was prompted by the former leadership of the TTFA lodging a claim before a local court in Trinidad and Tobago in order to contest the decision of the FIFA Council to appoint a normalisation committee for the TTFA,” FIFA wrote in a statement.
“This course of action was in direct breach of article 59 of the FIFA Statutes, which expressly prohibits recourse to ordinary courts unless specifically provided for in the FIFA regulations.”
The football board noted that the suspension will only be lifted when the TTFA fully complies with its obligations as a member of FIFA, including recognising the legitimacy of the appointed normalisation committee and bringing its own statutes into line with the FIFA Statutes.
Trinidad and Tobago are scheduled to play Guyana in their next competitive fixture on Oct. 8, the start of their qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
