IFA works behind the scenes to prevent Palestinian proposal from passing

Israel Football Association officials continued in their efforts to thwart the Palestinian request to ban Israel from FIFA on Wednesday, lobbying the power brokers at world soccer’s governing body in Switzerland ahead of the organization’s annual Congress, which gets under way today in Zurich.

IFA chairman Ofer Eini has met with officials in Zurich over recent days, with former IFA chairman and current UEFA Executive Committee member Avi Luzon to arrive in Switzerland on Thursday and lend a helping hand.

The vast majority of UEFA delegates are expected to vote against the proposal, assuming it does eventually come to a vote.
