FOOTBALL: T&T association criticised for missing payment schedule

Published:Thursday | January 30, 2014 | 8:49 AM

Former national defender, Brent Sancho is calling on the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) to honour a payment schedule designed to settle a longstanding wage dispute with the 2006 World Cup squad.



Sancho, who represented several players from the squad, called on the TTFA to make the payment following threats by members to return to court to force the local association to pay.



Thirteen players were owed nearly TT$12 million after the UK-based Sports Dispute Resolution Panel and later the Trinidad and Tobago High Court ruled in their favour in a legal impasse with the TTFA.



An out-of-court settlement to pay in several tranches was reached last May.



However, players are now complaining that the TTFA is five months late in the second of five payments.
