The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association has announced it will back Gianni Infantino for FIFA's presidential election on February 26th. Infantino was in Trinidad on Wednesday to meet with TTFA president, David John-Williams.

The TTFA head said Infantino's presentation suited the interests of local and Caribbean football best. John-Williams said the three aspects of Infantino's presentation which influenced the TTFA were:

1) Their commitment to developing facilities in countries that need it

2) The increase in the FAP grants particularly to countries in the Caribbean region

3) The commitment for technical support regarding coaching

Sitting alongside John-Williams, Infantino responded to the TTFA by saying, "He is a football man. I am a football man. We can talk football. We can talk development, and that's why I think the chemistry immediately worked."
