FIFA warns Bosnian Football Federation

The long-awaited clash between Romania and Bosnia, scheduled on March 26 in Zenica, may no longer count in the race to qualify for EURO 2012. FIFA has issued a warning against the Sarajevo-based Football Federation, advising it to modify its current statute by March 31 or face exclusion from all competitions, informs. Bosnia-Herzegovina could be excluded from international competitions because the Bosnian Federation’s statute is not in line with FIFA regulations. The system through which the representatives of each community (Serb, Croatian and Muslim) rotate at the helm of the Bosnian Federation every 18 months is not on the international body’s liking, the latter asking for a single Federation led by a single President. For the time being Bosnian officials have refused to fall in line with these demands but will take a decision on March 29 when they will meet to vote a possible statute change.
