FIFA Congress Ratifies Zimbabwe's Suspension

FIFA Congress Ratifies Zimbabwe's Suspension

FIFA has ratified Zimbabwe’s indefinite suspension from international football during the 72nd FIFA Congress in Doha, Qatar.

Zimbabwe as well as Kenya and Pakistan were on Thursday suspended indefinitely.

FIFA suspended ZIFA on 24 February this year over the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC)’s interference in football matters but placed conditions for readmission.

However, the SRC refused to meet FIFA’s conditions, leaving the world football governing body with no option but to suspend Zimbabwe indefinitely.

During the FIFA Congress held in Doha, Qatar on Thursday, 199 out of 201 voted for Zimbabwe’s suspension.

FIFA will only lift the ban when certain conditions are met, among them the unconditional reinstatement of the Felton Kamambo-led ZIFA board.

What does the suspension mean for Zimbabwean football?

Zimbabwe will not be allowed to participate in any international football activities.

This means that the Warriors could miss out on qualification for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

Local football clubs will be barred from representing the country in continental competitions.

Local referees will not be considered for international assignments.

Mlotshwa is doing more harm to our football than solving it. Football is not based on political rules or personal vendetta. Talking of sanctions... This is a typical example how gvt applies for them.

It's not good to always think we are always correct because we went to war. Many countries went to war to liberate themselves but they have moved on. We are always bragging about how we liberated this country and no one should tell us when we go wrong. Fifa will not listen to that. Chiyangwa is behind all this drama and Mlotshwa is not thinking like a man but he is going to regret. Leave politics out of football. You will never win a war against Fifa
