The Normalization Committee has announced that FIFA has officially lifted the ban on the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF).
According to an official release from FIFA, "The Bureau of the FIFA Council resolved on 29 June 2022 to lift the ban that was levied on the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) in April 2021 owing to undue third-party influence."
The choice was made after FIFA obtained proof that the PFF"s normalisation committee had reclaimed full control of the organization"s facilities and was capable of overseeing its financial operations.
Haroon Malik, the chairman of the Normalization Committee, congratulated the entire country on the breakthrough and said his staff had worked really hard to lift the ban that has plagued both football players and fans in the nation.
With the ban lifted, the Pakistani football team will once again be free to play in international competitions and friendly matches, and after more than a year of absence, regular football activities will once again be conducted throughout the nation.
Following the Ashfaq group"s unauthorised occupation of the PFF headquarters, Pakistan was banned last year. The Normalization Committee"s authority has now been extended by a year, and its tasks now include holding elections, starting up the football league, and taking control of PFF"s property.
