CONCACAF to await FIFA decision on Trinidad and Tobago FA about their CONCACAF Gold Cup participation!

CONCACAF has noted FIFA’s decision to suspend the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA). This matter was discussed during an emergency meeting of the CONCACAF Council last night, and the following was agreed:

For the purposes of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup draw, scheduled to take place on Monday, September 28, at 8:00 pm ET, Trinidad and Tobago will be drawn in the Prelims as planned.

However, they will only participate in the competition if the suspension imposed on the TTFA is lifted by FIFA by 5:00 pm ET on December 18, 2020.

If the suspension imposed on the TTFA is not lifted by FIFA by 5:00pm ET on December 18, 2020, Trinidad and Tobago will be replaced in the Gold Cup Preliminaries by the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association as the next highest ranked team based on their 2019 CONCACAF Nations League performance.
