Football governing body FIFA has slapped Chad with an indefinite ban in global football due to government interference in the sport.
The move was brought about by a decision by the Chadian government to dissolve powers held by FTFA and instead formed a committee to take over FTFA matters as well as FTFA premises.
FIFA noted that the suspension will remain in place until when the government decisions are reverted and powers transferred back to FIFA and FTFA.

In Pakistan, the decision was prompted by a third party interference into the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) which is termed as gross violation of the bureau statutes.
A group of protesters took over operations of PFF form Haroon Malik in Lahore and transferred it to Syed Ashfaq Hussain Shah.
A warning letter was issued by FIFA demanding the removal of the new parties and recognition of the existing failure to do set to call a decision by the FIFA council. The matter remained unsolved this the suspension.
“This suspension will only be lifted once FIFA has received confirmation from the normalisation committee of the PFF that the PFF’s premises, accounts, administration and communication channels are again under its full control and it can continue to carry out its mandate without further hindrance.” Said FIFA
