FIFA has suspended membership of the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) due to political interference. FIFA confirmed the matter through a notice last Wednesday. In 2016, the Pakistan Supreme Court selected a team of football officials led by Ashfaq Hussain to run the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF). FIFA did not recognize him. The same committee has now taken control of the federation from the FIFA ‘normalization committee’ headed by Harun Malik, local media reported. They claim that the committee has seized power by force. FIFA has issued a stay notice for him.
FIFA has also suspended the membership of the African country Chad. FIFA has suspended the membership of the country’s youth and sports ministry due to interference in the football association. The Confederation of African Football has been disqualified from the Africa Nations Cup due to interference.
