Pakistan Football Federation constitution, law to foil attempts of defaming Pakistan in International Football Family: Makhdoom Faisal Saleh Hayat

Lahore, June 28, 2015 (PPI-OT):In a statement issued on Sunday, PFF President Makhdoom Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat said that Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) made the attempts of defaming Pakistan foil in international football family and Pakistan football family will remain steadfast in making attempts of illegal people futile.

Despite lack of official support, the PFF, honouring its national obligations to its credit, has proved its true worth by arranging series of international events in Pakistan, thereby, dispelling the international misconceptions of Pakistan being an unsafe country and being a no-go area international sports.

In spite of financial constraints, the PFF has over the years successfully sought to bring into the mainstream, the emerging youth of Pakistan (boys and girls), the future of destiny of Pakistan. The PFF has always endeavoured to raise the image of Pakistan in the international sports community through its proactive continued positive interactions with world sports bodies.

The conduct of the non-bonafide and illegal individuals for the sole purposes of benefiting themselves is nothing but another fruitless attempt to take over an internationally-recognised body. It is clarified that this illegal action by already disgraced and suspended individuals has no bearing on the working and conduct of PFF and all its allied bodies.

The entire structure of the PFF and all its wings are carrying on their work in accordance with approved regulations and statutes. As per the PFF statutes, the PFF congress for elections will be held as per schedule, rules and regulations on June 30 at Changla Gali. In accordance with national and international regulations, these elections will be held in the presence of FIFA, AFC and POA observers.
