FIFA Congress to discuss Palestinian proposal to suspend Israel

Israel Football Association chairman Ofer Eini and CEO Rotem Kemer will meet with FIFA President Sepp Blatter in Zurich, Switzerland, on Wednesday to discuss the Palestinian request to suspend Israel from world soccer’s governing body.

The Palestinian Football Association’s proposal for the suspension of Israel will be on the agenda in FIFA’s annual Congress in Zurich on May 29.

The Palestinians claim that Israel has continued to hamper its soccer activities, imposing restrictions on the movement of their athletes between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
