The Confederation of Independent Football Associations (ConIFA) will be hosting its 2nd European Football Championship tournament in the TRNC in June.

Prime Minister Huseyin Ozurgun who received the President of ConIFA Per-Anders Blind, who is in the TRNC for the championship drew attention to the sports embargoes imposed on the Turkish Cypriot people.

Speaking during the visit, the Confederation president drew attention to the fact that sports was universal and that politics should not be allowed to influence sports.

The draws for the tournament’s fixture were scheduled to take place at the Acapulco Resort Hotel on Saturday afternoon.

ConIFA is a federation of football associations established in 2013 which is made up of teams that represent nations, dependencies, unrecognised states, minorities and stateless peoples not affiliated to FIFA.
