FIFA Threatens To Suspend Gambia For One Year



FIFA has written to the National Sports Council on the suspension of the Gambia Football Federation officials in the wake of the Under-20 team debacle, threatening to suspend The Gambia for one year.The world football body said it understood the council’s concern in the wake of the disqualification of the country by CAF, but advised the NSC to lift the suspensions as it would constitute government interference in the matter of the federation which should be decided by the delegates of the football federations.

Failure to act promptely, FIFA warned that it could suspend The Gambia for one year (to at least until June 2015) when the suspension could be reviewed at a FIFA congress.

According to sources privy to the letter, FIFA also suggested that after the lifting of the NSC suspensions, the GFF executive should organise an extraordinary congress of delegates to seek a new vote of confidence and ascertain the trust of the delegates.
