The Bureau of the FIFA Council has decided to suspend Football Associations of Pakistan and Chad with immediate effect.

FIFA in a statement said it suspended the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) with immediate effect due to third-party interference, which constitutes a serious violation of the FIFA Statutes.

The council has also suspended the Chadian Football Association (FTFA) due to government interference.

The council said the suspensions will only be lifted once FIFA has received confirmation from local bodies that they can continue to carry out the mandate without further hindrance.
