Palestine Could Host 2016 FIFA Congress - Blatter

FIFA President Sepp Blatter has said that the Palestine Football Association could host the 2016 or 2017 FIFA Congress, reiterating his determination to end Israeli travel restrictions on Palestinian football players.

Blatter who visited the Palestine FA in Ramallah in the West Bank said the association was planning to host the FIFA Congress in three or four years’ time.

Blatter met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and will visit Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in what he said would be the “most delicate” part of his mission.

Having met the Palestine FA, Blatter will also meet Avi Luzon, the Israeli Football Association president, as well as visit football development projects in both countries.
