The Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (BAFA) has been suspended due to governmental interference in its affairs, which started with a decision by the authorities to dissolve the association and replace it with a new federation in December 2008.
FIFA's Executive Committee, at its meeting in Rio de Janeiro Tuesday, announced that the suspension applies with immediate effect and its club DPMM will no longer be permitted to play in the Singapore S-League. The suspension will run untill BAFA is reinstalled by the government.
The Executive Committee also supported the creation of a normalisation committee for the Grenada Football Association and an interim committee for the Syrian Football Association. FIFA is also closely monitoring the sutuation of other association, including Iraq, Kuwait, Togo, El Salvador and Peru.
The meeting was chaired by FIFA President, Josef Blatter.
