LAHORE: A joint delegation of FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation is set to visit Pakistan next month to monitor the progress of the country’s football federati­on’s elections under its Norm­a­lisation Committee (NC).

The delegation will arrive here on January 20 for a three-day visit, Pakistan Football Federation NC’s chairman Haroon Malik announced in a press conference here at the Football House on Thursday.

The officials of the world football governing body FIFA and AFC will also meet the Senate Standing Comm­ittee on Sports, the members of the Ministry of Inter-provincial Coordi­nation and the Pakistan Sports Board representatives.

Haroon said the NC was yet to decide dates for the long-due PFF elections, claiming legal cases against the body were a hurdle. He said the ongoing club registration process was set to end on Dec 15 while club scrutiny was scheduled for next month.
