As a result, the league implemented a series of marketing plans to establish itself as a viable professional league.

However, the early 1990s marked a low point in Trinidad and Tobago football.

In 1993, after a streak of poor performances, the Soca Warriors gave its worst ever showing in the Caribbean Cup after finishing a disappointing third, which was preceded with an early exit from its 1994 FIFA World Cup qualification attempt.

Prior to 2011, the Pro League operated on a spring-to-fall format which caused several conflicts with the FIFA calendar.

Consequently, many of the league's top players abandoned their Pro League clubs during June and July to compete in international competitions, which made it difficult for the league to attract supporters for its matches.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the National League, composed primarily of amateur players, served as the highest level in the Trinidad and Tobago football league system.

However, it was during this period Trinidad and Tobago experienced an upswing in support for football following a rise in international success at both club and national team levels.Early league results suggested an improvement in player development with several domestic professionals named to starting roles in the national team.Consequently, club owners agreed in March 2012 to develop a new professional league that would operate rather as a corporation, known as the T&T Pro League Limited, owned by the member clubs and a continuation of the Professional Football League.The TT Pro League (formerly known as the Professional Football League) is the Trinidad and Tobago professional league for association football clubs.It is the country's primary football competition and serves as the top division in the Trinidad and Tobago football league system.Contested by ten clubs, the league is one of the world's few football leagues that does not operate on an automatic system of promotion and relegation.
