T&T World Cup squad threatens court action
2013-01-25 10:13:48 | (0 Comments)
Members of Trinidad and Tobago's World Cup squad of 2006 are threatening to ask the high court to liquidate the assets of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF), so that millions owed to them can be paid.
The 13 members of the Soca Warriors have made their intentions known in a letter to FIFA president Sepp Blatter, CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb and TTFF president Raymond Tim Kee.
The players are 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 TTFF.
The Sports Dispute Resolution Panel had awarded the players 50 per cent of proceeds associated with the 2006 World Cup campaign.
However, the matter had to be contested in the high court after the TTFF failed to settle on the grounds that the players had breached the Panel's gag order.
