LAHORE Brunei Darussalam is at risk of being the second soccer federation to be expelled from world of football. FIFA President Sepp Blatter warned that Brunei was in danger of being expelled from world football in a dispute over alleged government interference in the sport. The federation of Brunei have not agreed to a roadmap FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation have proposed, and FIFAs 208 national members will be asked to expel the Brunei Darussalam Football Association if it has not been reinstated by the government before 60th FIFA congress scheduled for 9-10 June in Johannesburg. The association was suspended because of political interference and AFC officials are making a last-ditch plea to Brunei authorities to prevent the countrys football association being kicked out (FIFA has previously expelled only one member - South Africa in 1976 during the apartheid era). When FIFA slapped a ban on the Bruneis soccer body on 29 September 2009, thus banning the national football team and all club sides in the country from international competitions. It meant that Brunei club DPMM will no longer be permitted to play in the Singapore S-League The 'interference referred to the setting up of the new body, the Football Federation of Brunei Darussalam (FFBD), which was initiated by Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports within the grace timeframe that Bafa was given to appeal. Bafa was deregistered on 15 Nov 2008, and was given a month to appeal. The FFBD was set up on 26 Nov, formally registered on 3 Dec and subsequently approved 15 days later on 18 Dec. To many, the registration and approval of FFBD set a new record, when in fact applications normally take months to be approved. FIFA frequently takes active roles in the running of the sport and developing the game around the world. One of its sanctions is to suspend affilited country when a government interferes in the running of FIFAs Member Association. During suspension, the clubs and national teams of country are no longer permitted to take part in international matches, whether friendly or competitive. Furthermore, the member association is deprived of its right to vote at any congresses held by international bodies and is no longer entitled to receive financial assistance. FIFA has strict statutes that forbid government influence on affiliated 208 nations. The soccer ruling body does not allow government interference in footballing matters. If you participate in FIFA, everybody has to abide by the FIFA Statutes, otherwise they can stay in their country, said FIFA President Sepp Blatter. Two years ago, the soccer bodies of Republic of Chad, Madagascar, Iraq (again in 2009) have been hit with a worldwide ban by FIFA. In 2006, Greece and Iran underwent ban because of excessive government interference. FIFA also suspended Kenya for three months in 2004 and Bangladesh in early 2002 for what they called government interference.
