PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – FIFA Vice President and CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb is pleased with plans presented Tuesday by the Trinidad & Tobago Football Association (TTFA) that will ensure the sport’s continued development in the nation.

On his first official trip to the twin-island republic, Webb met with Trinidad & Tobago President Anthony Carmona, as well as several other senior government officials.  

Giving his assessment of the country’s plans for football development, Webb said, “Trinidad and Tobago has a legacy to maintain as one of the Caribbean’s best and I am certain that, with a continued focus on training and forward planning, performances on the pitch and improvements to the TTFA administration will be realized in the near future.”

TTFA President Raymond Tim Kee expressed thanks to Webb for his continued support and encouragement.

“We were indeed very pleased and honoured to host President Webb in Port of Spain today,” said Tim Kee.  “His presence gave us the opportunity to engage in talks with the President of the Republic Mr. Carmona and other stakeholders for the ongoing development of our football.  This will go a long way for us.”
