FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) officials yesterday handed the greenlight to Football Sri Lanka (FSL) to conduct their postponed elections on October 23, 2022, after the new Constitution was passed at a Special General Meeting (SGM) held at the Pegasus Reef Hotel in Wattala yesterday.
The new Constitution for FSL was passed with more than two-thirds of vote despite 13 members abstaining from voting.
The SGM was observed by Prince Rufus (FIFA Regional Office Development Manager of South Asia), Sarah Solemale (Senior MA Governance Services Manager of FIFA) and P. Kattel (Head of South Asia Unit Development Department and Governance Department, AFC).
The FSL Constitution with a new clause of allocating three votes for a League, instead of a single vote was passed with 48 votes in favour while none voted against it. All other new clauses were passed with 61 votes in favour without any opposition.
Meanwhile, a committee comprising two Retired High Court Judges and an A-Grade SLAS officer have been appointed to overlook the FSL elections on October 23.
