FIFA orders PFF to revise statutes by March 2020


The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has told the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) to revise its statutes and align them with the governing body’s statutes before its next elections. The dealing is March 2020.

A FIFA spokesman while speaking to a local news outlet said, during its discussions between FIFA and PFF on September 26, the Committee underlined that the original mandate of the PFF executive committee (i.e. June 2015 until June 2019) should in principle be respected.”

“In particular, the Committee noted that the PFF Statutes need to be aligned with the requirements of FIFA and the FIFA Statutes as well as that the clubs eligible to participate in the electoral process have to be scrutinised,” the spokesman explained.

“Once these steps have been completed, elections of a new PFF executive committee shall be held in a timely manner, but at the latest by the end of March 2020.

“The Committee further mandated the FIFA administration to elaborate a roadmap laying out the aforementioned steps and taking into account the input of the PFF,” the spokesman concluded.
