New procedures to suspend or expel a member association from FIFA

New procedures to suspend or expel a member association from FIFA

The Extraordinary Congress held in Zurich on 26 February 2016 adopted a new set of Statutes to incorporate the desired reforms.   One important change was to stipulate that only the Council, which replaces the Executive Committee, could propose suspension or expulsion of a member association at an Annual Congress.  Therefore to remove the Israeli FA from FIFA will require a decision first by the Council.  How member associations can approach the Council needs to be clarified.

Details of the new Statutes, effrective from 26 April 2016,  are given on the FIFA website.
