Egyptian Normalisation Committee mandate extended by Bureau of the FIFA Council

31 Jul 2021

The Bureau of the FIFA Council has decided today to further extend the mandate of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Normalisation Committee until 5 January 2022.

The Bureau observed that the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the implementation of strict restrictions in Egypt, which has unfortunately not improved to the extent that would allow the normalisation committee to deliver its mandate and convene the EFA General Assembly to conduct elections.

The decision to further extend the mandate, which was due to expire on 31 July 2021, was taken with the primary objective of allowing the normalisation committee to fulfil all of the tasks as part of its mandate, which would conclude with the holding of elections for a new EFA leadership.
