CONIFA Statement Regarding Ellan Vannin

The Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA) has been informed that Ellan Vannin has withdrawn from the 2018 Paddy Power World Football Cup.

Ellan Vannin’s withdrawal comes following a vote of the tournament management committee on Monday 4 June, which rejected a challenge by Ellan Vannin to the eligibility of a Barawa player. Details of that vote can be found here.

Ellan Vannin’s fixture at 3pm on Tuesday 5 June, against Tibet at Bromley FC’s Hayes Lane, will be fulfilled by the ‘London Turkish All-Stars’. Refunds will be available online or on the gate on request. Ellan Vannin’s remaining fixtures in the tournament will be fulfilled by other opponents – CONIFA will release further details shortly. For tournament bracket purposes, Tibet’s match today will be treated as a 3-0 win.

Further details will be released shortly.
