FIFA windfall for BFF

January 30, 2011

Bangladesh Football federation will receive 3 lakh US dollars as profits for the football’s regional governing body. FIFA will distribute the additional net profit for the 2007-2010 period between all of its member nations. Earlier, FIFA gave away 2.5 lakh dollars to each federation last year. The confederations will each receive 25 lakh. The decision was taken in the latest FIFA congress held in Samoa.
The total amount of net profit for the period was 340 crore dollars, a lion’s share of which was generated from hosting the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Meanwhile, 1000 footballs have been gifted to the Bangladesh Football federation by the Korean Football Federation. The BFF president Kazi Salauddin in his recent visit to Korea, where he watched the Korea v Iran friendly, had asked his Kore-an counterpart for the balls.
