The Punjab Football Association (PFA) has also come to the fore to resolve the long-running football crisis in Pakistan as they urged Prime Minister Imran Khan to hand over the FIFA House Lahore to the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee.
Addressing a press conference held here at the SJAL Office on Tuesday, the PFA senior officials, including Khalid Sheikh from Narowal, Rana Shaukat Ali from Attock, Sheikh Iqbal from Bahawalpur and Raja Ishtiaq from Rawalpindi, said: “As the FIFA house has been evacuated, we urge the Prime Minister to hand it over to the FIFA-appointed PFF Normalisation Committee so that the FIFA suspensions are lifted from Pakistan. We also demanded the Normalisation Committee to announce PFF elections soon.”
They said the future of thousands of footballers has been plunged into darkness due to the ongoing football crisis in Pakistan since 2015. The game has reached the verge of disaster due to FIFA sanctions. “We show our solidarity to our fellow football lovers and organizers, who have initiated the movement for football revival from all over the country, especially Saeed Khan Taqqo, Azam Khan, Ali Bihar Brohi. We all are together to save the game from further destruction.”
They said players, coaches and referees are facing endless problems. “Pakistan’s notoriety cannot be tolerated anymore. Football cannot move forward in any country without the support of FIFA. Pakistan’s FIFA membership was suspended due to occupation of FIFA House Lahore on March 27, 2021,” he added.
The PFA officials urged the PM that when the authorities have vacated the FIFA House, it should be handed over to the FIFA NC as soon as possible so that the FIFA sanctions can be lifted and the PFF elections process may be started.
They also demanded the NC to announce the date of elections as soon as Pakistan’s FIFA membership is restored. They also vowed their full cooperation and support to the NC in holding free and fair elections as per PFF constitution. The PFA vice presidents also demanded the NC to form a committee representing true stakeholders of football in Pakistan.
