FIFA has today sent a letter to the Polish FA (PZPN) President Michal Listkiewicz in order to stress the fact that the internationally-recognised authorities of the PZPN must be restored in the headquarters of the federation in order to be able to adequately organise the two 2010 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying matches Poland vs. Czech Republic and Slovakia vs Poland scheduled for 11 and 15 October.

The letter indicates a deadline of Monday 6 October at noon for those authorities recognised by FIFA and UEFA to receive full control of the Polish FA premises, statutory competences and decision-making process, and for the cancellation of the appointment of the "commissioner".

Finally, the Polish FA is reminded of the potential consequences defined in case of violation of the FIFA Statutes and of the Regulations of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, including Article 6.12 of these Regulations.
