FIFA announce suspension of the Football Federation of Sri Lanka!

World football governing body FIFA have announced the suspension of the Football Federation of Sri Lanka (FFSL).

FIFA in an official statement said:

We hereby inform you that, as a result of the decision taken by the Bureau of the FIFA Council on 21 January 2023, the FFSL has been suspended until further notice in accordance with article 16 of the FIFA Statutes.

Consequently, with effect from 21 January 2023, the FFSL has lost all of its membership rights, as defined in article 13 of the FIFA Statutes, until further notice. The FFSL representative and club teams are therefore no longer entitled to take part in international competitions until the suspension is lifted. This also means that neither the FFSL nor any of its members or officials
may benefit from any development programmes, courses or training from FIFA and/or the AFC.

Moreover, we would remind you and your affiliates not to enter into any sporting contact with the FFSL and/or its teams while the FFSL is suspended.

Finally, the Bureau of the FIFA Council or the FIFA Council may lift this suspension at any time before the next FIFA Congress takes place. Should this occur, we will inform you accordingly.
