TT Super League president Keith Look Loy expects the extraordinary general meeting (EGM) of the TT Football Association (TTFA) to be held on October 24 or 25.

The hosting of this critical EGM comes as a result of Tuesday’s decision by Justice Carol Gobin that FIFA's removal in March of the TTFA’s duly-elected executive and its installation of a normalisation committee to run its affairs illegal, null, and void and of no effect.

The promised EGM, according to reinstated TTFA president William Wallace, will be held to chart a way forward for TT football.

On Gobin's ruling, Look Loy commented, “The court’s judgment is a validation of the position that we took from day one. Justice Gobin’s decision is an entire validation of what we have said over the past seven months.”

Before Gobin’s judgment, Wallace vowed to “immediately convene an EGM” once the court ruled in favour of the TTFA.

Having won the legal battle against FIFA, Look Loy predicts the EGM will be held within the next ten days.

He said the TTFA membership should make a decision at the EGM on its recent appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to challenge FIFA’s suspension of the TTFA.

The 13 TTFA board members must meet and agree unanimously, or by a majority, on a date for the EGM.

The board members are the three officers (Wallace, Taylor and Phillp), one representative each from the five associations and one each from the TT Pro League, TT Super League, Women’s League Football, Secondary Schools Football League and the Referees Association.

Look Loy explained, “What we are seeking to do today (Wednesday) is to get the board to call that meeting. We want to call the EGM in under the minimum time, which is within ten days, according to the TTFA constitution.

“We’re looking at October 24 or 25. Then the membership will have its say and make the decision on how we are to proceed into the immediate future. Only the board can confirm when this will be held.”

Look Loy is a member of Wallace’s United TTFA slate, which removed David John-Williams as local head at the November 2019 elections.
