Ashfaq-led group decides not to leave PFF HQ as FIFA ultimatum ends


Lahore: Syed Ashfaq Hussain-led group has decided not to return the charge of the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) headquarters to the Normalisation Committee.

Ashfaq Hussain has opined that they will continue to work while controlling PFF Headquarters also known as ‘FIFA House’.

NC Chairman Haroon Malik has informed FIFA via email that he has not been returned the charge of the house.

“So far, three normalization committees have been making money only,” Ashfaq said. “No steps have been taken to hold elections in 18 months,” he blamed.

It must be noted here that Syed Ashfaq Hussain’s group allegedly took charge of the PFF. FIFA-installed Normalisation Committee (NC)’s chairman Haroon Malik claimed that Ashfaq-led group forcefully took charge of FIFA house.

Later on, FIFA reacted on this matter and warned the Ashfaq-led group to return PFF headquarters to the NC within a day otherwise harsh sanctions will be imposed on Pakistan.
