The Samoan Football Soccer Federation (SFSF) has been suspended by the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) for a 'misappropriation' of funds. The SFSF has accumulated debts of close to $A800,000 even though it has been given about $A6.5million in financial support from FIFA over the last five years. OFC general secretary Tai Nicholas is concerned over the issue and said that they had to take matters into their own hands. Speaking to the Herald Sun, he said, "It's important, as FIFA's regional body, that we can make sure their money is properly accounted for. "We've sent people up to help we want the current administration to stand down, the administration refused so we had to take this step." Differences between current SFSF president, Tole'afoa Tautulu Roebeck and the OFC have grounds for concern and the Supreme Court of Samoa will preside over the trial for the country's first Sports Dispute Tribunal this week.
