THE New Zealand Fiji Soccer Incorporated and Australia Fiji Soccer Association were endorsed as the associate members of the Fiji Football Association during the ordinary congress in Ba on Tuesday.

The NZ Fiji Soccer Inc. Under the presidency of Sachin Dutt assisted the Fiji Under-23 team during the Oceania play-off in Taupo in March.

The body provided the national U23 team with accommodation and transportation during the tournament.

AFSA under the presidency of Nick Sharma has entered an agreement to assist the various national teams as well.

Also during the meeting the Fiji FA board of control's motion to withdraw New Zealand Fiji Football Club Incorporated of Mangere's association membership was passed.

The Fiji FA BOC had noted that the NZFFCI had not fulfilled its commitments as undertaken by their letter of application in 2010.
