Normalisation committee appointed for the Argentine FA

The Bureau of the FIFA Council has today, 24 June 2016, decided to appoint a normalisation committee for the Argentine Football Association (AFA) in accordance with art. 8 par. 2 of the FIFA Statutes. The committee will be in charge of running the daily affairs of the AFA, revising the AFA statutes in order to bring them in line with the current FIFA Standard Statutes, and organising elections accordingly by 30 June 2017 at the latest.

The decision to appoint a normalisation committee comes after a joint FIFA and CONMEBOL mission visited Argentina earlier this month.

There will be between five and seven members of this normalisation committee, and they will be identified by a joint FIFA and CONMEBOL mission to take place soon. The normalisation committee will act as an electoral committee and none of its members will be eligible for any of the open positions.
