PORT OF SPAIN, Oct. 2:

The Trinidad Football Association is to seek affiliation to the Federation of International Football Associations.

Trinidad has become eligible for affiliation as she is now an independent nation. Affiliation would clear the way for Trinidad to participate in the World Cup Soccer championship and Olympic Tournaments such as the last Central American and Caribbean Games held in Jamaica in August.

The next World Cup Championship is scheduled for England in 1966.
