FIFA has Suspended Sri Lanka from participating in international football tournaments til further notice.

FIFA in a letter said Sri Lanka football agency had been embroidered in leadership tussle for a while.

FIFA alleged that sri Lanka’s Ministry of Sports introduced a raft of regulations that reportedly compromised the autonomy and independence of national sports bodies, including the Football Federation of Sri Lanka (FFSL).

According to the governing body, FFSL held an election, which fell short of standards agreed upon with FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), in which an ally of the sports minister became chairman.
