John-Williams – FIFA pleased with Home of Football project

-Newsday, July 13th, 2018

David John-Williams, president of the TTFA (TT Football Association), said yesterday that the global governing body for football, FIFA, is pleased with the work being at the Home of Football project at Balmain, Couva.

As reported in the Newsday article, The TT Government, in August 2017, approved the TTFA’s request to grant 7.64 hectors of land to establish a home of football.

According to John-Williams, “FIFA (came) here and (said) they were happy with the Home of Football, the progress and all the accountability.

“The TTFA reported that they got their second tranche of money from FIFA,” he added. “If your bank is giving you the money to continue, you must be doing something right and proper.”.

Asked for a response on a request made by TTFA board member Keith Look Loy, John-Williams said, “I have absolutely no comment. Mr Look Loy has taken his action and I’ll respond at the appropriate time. All I’ll say is a couple months ago Mr Look Loy reported to the nation to brace for FIFA intervention. Was there any? That’s as much as I would comment.”
