Bosnia Risks Exclusion From FIFA, UEFA Competitions

Many Bosnian fans are against the soccer federation's organizational structure
Bosnia's Football Federation is risking suspension from FIFA and UEFA competitions after it rejected a request to reform its statute.

Bosnian state radio reported on July 16 that soccer's ruling bodies had warned that failure to replace the Bosnian Football Federation's tripartite interethnic presidency with a single president would lead to suspension, preventing Bosnian teams from taking part in international competitions.

Reuters reports that soccer fans across Bosnia have long protested against the Bosnian Football Federation's organizational structure, and some players have boycotted the national team.
