FIFA statement on Trinidad and Tobago

FIFA Logo

For the avoidance of doubt, FIFA only recognises the authority and jurisdiction of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in these matters. Any dispute regarding the appointment of a Normalisation Committee falls squarely within the jurisdiction of the CAS, and CAS alone. 

“United TTFA” itself previously went to CAS and then unilaterally withdrew from the CAS process.

For the sake of completeness, it should be noted that the mediation FIFA previously agreed to with “United TTFA” would never have dealt with the legality of the appointment of the Normalisation Committee and would only have covered some costs related issues. This mediation will not go ahead now in any event, owing to the failure of the lawyers of “United TTFA“ to keep the matter confidential, in line with their professional and ethical obligations.
