FIFA sanctioned Mali after the dissolution of FEMAFOOT by the Minister for Sports, Housseini Amion Guindo, a decision that goes against FIFA's policy that requires governments not to meddle in football matters.

The two clubs had already set off for their return matches in Ismaili and Kigali but were barred from playing after FIFA banned the west African country on Friday, the Confederation of African Football confirmed in a letter to the Mali Football Federation.

A statement issued by Federation Internationale de Football Association said that the suspension will not be lifted until the ministerial decisions to disband the committee have been reversed. I and art. 19 of the FIFA Statutes to manage its affairs independently and with no influence from third parties.

As a result to this suspension, as of Friday March 17th, no team from Mali, whether a club or a National Team, can take part in worldwide competitions of any sort until the ban is lifted.

The decision means that Mali, placed 61st in FIFA's world rankings, can not play worldwide matches including World Cup qualifiers until the dispute is resolved to world governing body's satisfaction.

It also means that none of the federation's members can benefit from the development programs of FIFA or CAF.

Mali has hit back at becoming the latest African country to be suspended by Federation Internationale de Football Association over government inference saying it will not be pushed around and will continue to operate as it sees fit.
