The normalisation committee of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Football Federation (NFSBiH) met today with representatives of FIFA and UEFA at the Home of FIFA in Zurich. This working meeting had been scheduled in order to discuss the process in relation to the statutes of the NFSBiH and the work of the normalisation committee in this regard.
The members of the normalisation committee, led by chairman Ivica Osim, were greeted by FIFA President Joseph S Blatter and UEFA President Michel Platini, who congratulated the committee for their work and efforts and assured them of the support of the two organisations they head.
Attending the meeting were all the members of the normalisation committee – chairman Ivica Osim, deputy chairman Darko Ljubojević, Elveding Begić, Dragan Kulina, Ivan Beus and Sead Katjaz – as well as NFSBiH ambassadors Dusko Bajević, Faruk Hadžibegić and Sergej Barbarez, NFSBiH general secretary Jasmin Baković and FIFA-UEFA observers Rudi Zavrl and Amar Osim.
At the conclusion of the meeting, FIFA and UEFA expressed their satisfaction with the work of the normalisation committee which is making good progress in both the statutes process and the improvement in management of the federation. FIFA and UEFA are confident that the statutes will be approved by the established deadline of 26 May.
The normalisation committee, composed by football personalities dedicated to the development of the game in Bosnia and Herzegovina, had been appointed by the FIFA Emergency Committee on 12 April.
