PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Sept. 17:

Trinidad and Tobago Football Association, with a debt of TT$200,000 overhead, have been asked to vacate the upper St. Vincent Street, Port of Spain headquarters they have been occupying for the past 20 years, and to seek a new venue to hold their meetings.

This announcement was made by the 'BOMB' tabloid newspaper in this week-ends publication. The paper, confirming reports that the Association's officials have been told to get out of the premises of the late DR. ALDWYN FRANCIS, said Dr. Francis' wife Lorna Francis again called on the Association to 'move'. Mrs. Francis made the demand while the Association was in session at the 110 St. Vincent Street premises.

Meanwhile, TTFA have been reported to have completed plans for the pre-Olympic match between Suriname and Trinidad-Tobago at George Town Cricket club ground in Georgetown, Guyana, September 30.
