FIFA Banned Pakistan From Playing Football


Zurich: The Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) has been banned by FIFA with immediate effect due to “undue third-party interference.

In a bid to fix the issue, a high court-appointed administrator took over running of the PFF – but that move came in violation of Fifa statutes regarding political interference.

“The Bureau [of the Fifa Council] 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,” Fifa said in a statement.
