FIFA stops funding to Trinidad and Tobago

  • Football's world governing body FIFA has confirmed that it has halted funding to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) over its failure to produce audited statements.

    TTFA receives an annual subvention of $250,000 in four instalments but payments have not been wired to the association's account, officials have said.

    "Financial assistance and approval of new programmes to the TTFA are currently on hold awaiting full compliance," said a FIFA spokesman on Thursday.

    The TTFA audit, according to FIFA, should have been up to December 2014 and ought to have landed in the governing body's base in Zurich by March 31 this year. (Source: IANS)
