A two-man delegation from the Trinidad and Tonago Super League (TTSL), comprising President Keith Look Loy and Board member Clayton Morris, met this morning with Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs Shamfa Cudjoe at the Ministry’s head office in St. Clair.
The very cordial meeting focused on the formation of the league in 2017, the upcoming season due to begin on 9 June, and TTSL’s request for Ministry support for the League’s annual expenditure on inter-island travel for its members.
The Minister expressed her appreciation for TTSL’s effort to introduce professional standards and protocols into football, as well as the League’s effort to maintain its national character by paying for member clubs to travel between the two islands.
The Minister also stated her support for a Ministry subsidy for TTSL inter-island travel, which would await the release of funds to the Ministry by central government. The availability of government funding for such travel would allow TTSL to commit funds now allocated to inter-island travel to league development projects.
