The President of the Libyan Football Federation (LFF) Anwar Al-Tishani, met with the board members of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and disused the hurdles facing the LFF, the tensions with CAF members lately, and the possibility of lifting the ban on Libyan stadiums, so that international matches can be played in Libya once again.
“CAF asked for a record of the friendly international match that took place recently at Tripoli stadium between Al-Ahli Tripoli and Ghana’s Aduana Stars in the presence of spectators so that it could consider allowing Libyan teams participating in CAF competitions to play their matches at home.” Sources from the LFF said.
They added that Al-Tishani will later have a meeting with the FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, on the margins of the final match of AFCON 2017 in Gabon between Egypt and Cameroon to discussing scrapping the ban on Libya’s stadiums.
The LFF is now preparing for membership and presidency elections, which will take place in Tobruk on February 27. Seven sports figures were nominated across the country and the most familiar one is the current President, Anwar Al-Tishani, together with the former President, Jamal Al-Jaafari.
