THE TT Football Association (TTFA) executive has withdrawn its appeal of FIFA’s suspension of TT from international football before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland.
On Wednesday, deputy president of the CAS appeals arbitration division Dr Elisabeth Steiner ruled that the appeal between the TTFA and FIFA was terminated and removed from the court’s roll.
Wednesday’s order was given without costs, except for the court office fee already paid by the TTFA.
On Monday, the TTFA withdrew its appeal, which was filed on September 25.
This withdrawal follows Sunday’s extraordinary general meeting, at which the majority of the TTFA membership voted to accept the normalisation committee appointed by FIFA in March.
Since then, TTFA’s president William Wallace and his executive have been in a battle against FIFA, first over the appointment of the committee and then the world governing body’s suspension of TT from international football.
On Friday, the Court of Appeal overturned Justice Carol Gobin’s decision that FIFA acted illegally in removing Wallace’s executive.
