As agreed during the recent meeting of the FIFA Task Force Israel-Palestine, the Israel and Palestine Football Associations will hold a working meeting to discuss modalities between both associations to facilitate the movement of persons and goods for football purposes in and out of and within Palestine. This meeting will take place on Monday 23 September 2013, at the Home of FIFA in Zurich.

Israel Football Association (IFA) President Avi Luzon, Palestinian Football Association (PFA) President Jibril Al Rajoub, and representatives from FIFA, AFC and UEFA are due to take part in this meeting.

The establishment of the FIFA Task Force Israel-Palestine was announced by FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter in early July, following the mandate he received during the 63rd FIFA Congress and his subsequent trip to the Middle East.
