The Trinidad and Tobago Super League continues to establish itself and the League is seeking applications for the position of League Secretary. This is a full-time position.

TTSL was established on 13 December 2016 by thirteen clubs which previously played in the TTFA’s “National Super League” competition. The number of member clubs has quickly increased to eighteen since that time. The TTSL has set its kick-off date as Sunday 11 June 2017 and is quickly moving to ensure that its inaugural season is successful.
