The world football governing body, FIFA has
suspended the Pakistan Football Federation over its involvement in third party interference.
According to fifa.com, ‘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.
Following its suspension, the PFF loses all its
membership rights as defined in art. 13 of the FIFA
Statutes. The PFF representative and club teams
are no longer entitled to take part in international
competitions until the suspension is lifted.
This also means that neither the PFF nor any of its
members or officials may benefit from any
development programmes, courses or training from FIFA or the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
Moreover, and in accordance with art. 16 par. 3 of
the FIFA Statutes, other member associations may not entertain sporting contact with the PFF during its suspension.’
