The 2010 Trinidad and Tobago Goal Shield was the second edition of the annual Lucozade Sport Goal Shield, which is a knockout tournament competition for teams in the TT Pro League. W Connection entered as the defending champions after they defeated Defence Force 3–0 in the inaugural tournament. Continuing from the previous season, the competition not only allowed the winner and runner-up healthy purses at the end of the tournament, but more so give an added incentive for more goals to be scored throughout the tournament. In particular, the winner of the competition was awarded TT$20,000 plus an additional TT$3,000 for every goal scored in the final, TT$2,000 for every goal in the semifinals, and TT$1,000 for each goal scored in the quarterfinals. Whereas, the runner-up was awarded TT$10,000 plus TT$1,500 for every goal scored in the final, TT$1,000 for every goal in the semifinals, and TT$500 for each goal scored in the quarterfinals.[1]

Due to the refurbishment of Trinidad and Tobago's five major stadiums, ahead of the 2010 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, all of the matches were played at Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya.[2]

Qualification[edit]

Seeding was determined from the league standings following the conclusion of the first round of matches in the 2010–11 season. The bottom two teams were placed in a penalty shootout to determine which team would advance to the qualifying round. Teams ranked seventh to ninth were then placed directly into the qualifying round which will determine the seventh and eight spots in the quarterfinals. Finally, the teams ranked from first to sixth automatically qualified for the quarterfinals.[2]

The automatic quarterfinal qualifiers in order of league position were: Defence Force, Joe Public, W Connection, Ma Pau, San Juan Jabloteh, and Caledonia AIA.
