QATAR Stars League CEO Hani Taleb Ballan was last week elected as a member of the new FIFA Referees Committee.
Hani has several years’ experience of holding important positions in the field in both Qatar Football Association and Asian Football Confederation.
The new members were appointed by the FIFA Council on the proposal of its president and member
associations and confederations.
Meanwhile, in accordance with the reform package approved by the Extraordinary Congress last February, FIFA’s standing committees have been reduced from 26 to the following nine — Governance, Finance, Development, Organising for FIFA Competitions, Football Stakeholders, Member Associations, Players’ Status, Referees and Medical.
Standing committee members have a four-year term office.
