Former Fifa vice-president Jack Warner has sued the T&T Football Association (TTFA) over almost $16 million in loans he claims he provided while at the helm of the organisation.
In the lawsuit, filed in the Port-of-Spain High Court, on Monday, Warner is alleging that the organisation had failed to repay the loans despite acknowledging them several times in the past.
According to his court filings, which were obtained by Guardian Media, Warner claiming that he provided the loans, totalling $15,761,003, over a period of approximately 15 years.
The T&T Football Association’s (TTFA) “Home of Football” project is progressing well with training fields near completion in Couva.
In August 2017, the Government of T&T approved a long-awaited request, when it granted 7.64 hectors of land to the TTFA in order to establish a home for football.
