Suspended for the second time in 4 years
The Pakistan Football Federation was suspended for the second time in 4 years due to third party interference when a group of officials and protesters took over the headquarters of the Lahore-based institution on 27 March.
The brunt of internal war
They were opposing the ‘normalization committee’ appointed by FIFA to run the game in Pakistan after several years of internal fighting between a group of protesting officials. The possession of the PFF headquarters has already disrupted the National Women’s Championship.
Why was Chad suspended?
Chad was suspended when the government of this African country disbanded the National Soccer Federation and tried to appoint new officials to run the game. FIFA has said that they will lift the suspension only when the government revokes its decision and reassigns the authority to the President of the Football Federation.
