TTFA regains full FIFA membership rights

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) once again has full FIFA membership rights and its teams can return to international competitions after having its suspension lifted by football's world governing body, FIFA.

It comes after the TTFA last month voted to stop court action being taken against FIFA and recognize a normalization committee appointed by FIFA in March to run the TTFA’s affairs.

In light of this and an October Trinidad and Tobago Court of Appeal ruling which went in FIFA's favour, the suspension has been lifted "with immediate effect".

FIFA suspended the TTFA in September for "grave violations" of its statutes. This stemmed from the TTFA contesting FIFA's appointment of the normalization committee and appealing to the nation's High Court, in breach of FIFA statutes.

The TTFA FA ignored several FVIFA deadlines to stop the legal action before being suspended.

Because of COVID-19-related postponements, Trinidad and Tobago's national team has not missed any competitive fixtures.
