Colombo (LNW): Former President of the Football Federation of Sri Lanka (FFSL), Jaswar Umar, has once again secured his position as the President of Football Sri Lanka.
This was when yesterday’s (29) election witnessed Umar winning with a decisive 45-20 vote.
Earlier this year, FIFA had suspended the FFSL starting from January 21, 2023, citing external interference in the Federation’s affairs and issues surrounding the Sri Lankan Football elections held in the same month.
However, FIFA lifted the suspension in August this year, attributing to the FFSL’s adherence to stipulated guidelines, which included the design and implementation of an electoral roadmap.
Following this roadmap, yesterday’s election took place, leading to the reinstatement of Umar as the President.
