FIFA restores membership of Pakistan Football Federation


ISLAMABAD- The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has restored the membership of Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) today.

The membership of PFF was suspended last year in October due to political interference in the organisation.

On October 11, 2017, FIFA issued the statement on its website, 'The Bureau took this decision as a result of the fact that the PFF offices and its accounts remain in control of a court-appointed administrator, which constitutes a violation of the PFF obligations to manage its affairs independently and without influence from any third parties in accordance with the FIFA Statutes.'

The suspension will be lifted once the PFF offices and access to the PFF accounts are returned to the PFF, the statement further read.
