NZF aligning with FIFA Statutes

FIFA, the international governing body for football, have asked all Member Associations to ensure their regulations are in line with FIFA Statutes within the next three years.
Michael Anderson, board member of New Zealand Football and chair of Northern Football, is part of a seven-member committee formed to guide the change process in New Zealand.
“The working committee has been established to consult with the game and develop the required changes to New Zealand Football’s rules,” Anderson said.
“The review of the rules we have in place will ensure our processes align with FIFA best practice guidelines which safeguard the rights of all stakeholders in the game, not only in this country, but around the world.”
Following a consultation process with key stakeholders in July, proposals for rule changes will be put to the New Zealand Football Congress in September 2014.
No new elections or appointments will be made to the NZ Football board until new rule changes are in place.
NZ Football Rules Working Committee:
Nick Davidson (President, NZ Football)
Members: Bill Moran (Interim Chair, NZ Football), Michael Anderson (NZ Football and Chair of Northern Football), Phil Barry (Working Committee Leader), Patsi Davies (Chair, Waikato-Bay Of Plenty Football), Rod Pelosi (Deputy Chair, Referees Committee), and Stephen Williamson (Chair, Auckland Football)
