The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) has partnered with the Lions Club of Trinidad and Tobago in order to assist with the relief drive for Caribbean countries affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
In a media conference at the National Cycling Centre, Couva yesterday, TTFA media consultant Wayne Cunningham said, “The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association came up with an idea to help in the relief efforts throughout the Caribbean and especially try and help our member associations in Dominica, St Martin and Antigua/Barbuda.”
Cunningham disclosed that the forthcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the United States, which will be scheduled for October 10 at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, will also be used as a fund-raising drive for the relief efforts. The TTFA will have a four-tiered ticket system, with hurricane relief tickets for $100 (uncovered stands) and $200 (covered stands); as well as regular tickets worth $150 (uncovered ) and $250 (covered).
“With the hurricane relief tickets, you’ll need to bring four items from the ODPM (Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management) list to contribute to the relief efforts.”
