Fijian Duo Elected In FIFA Committees

Fiji Football Association is proud to announce the election of two Fijians into the football international governing body, FIFA Committees.

Fiji FA vice president Aiyaz Musa was elected as a member of the powerful FIFA Governance, Audit and Compliance committee while Ba Lawyer Samuel Ram was elected as a member of the FIFA Appeals committee.

Ram had previously served as a member of the FIFA Appeals committee.

Both Musa and Ram were elected during the 71st FIFA Ordinary Congress last Saturday which was attended by all 211 member countries via the virtual platform.

They will serve for the next four years together with the Fiji FA President Rajesh Patel who is a FIFA Council Member.

“My heartfelt congratulations to both our members for being elected in the FIFA committees. It is indeed a milestone achievement for Fiji FA to see two more of our members in the influential committees,” Patel said.

Fiji FA chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf said both candidates had to go through a rigorous eligibility check before being endorsed as candidates.

“Mr. Patel had worked closely with Oceania Football Confederation and its members to get Fijians nominated for some positions in the FIFA standing committees.

“It is pleasing to note that with OFC member countries support that two Fijians have been elected to the very important FIFA committees.

“Fiji FA congratulates them on their achievements and we wish them all the best,” Yusuf said.

The FIFA Congress also remembered those members who are no longer with us and it was a proud moment to see Late Mr. Hari Raj Naicker remembered as well.
