Sport Australia entered the war of the Australian Football Federation Congress, with Chief Executive Officer Kate Palmer stating that the organization does not support the governance changes proposed by the working group supported by FIFA.
In a letter to the nine state federations and A -League club, Palmer said it would be a "concern" for Sport Australia if all the recommendations made by the review congress working group (CRWG) were to be enacted.
"It is the vision of Sport Australia, that there AUSTRALIA Sports Sports & # 39; Principles," Palmer wrote in the letter, which was seen by AAP.
However, Palmer did not establish what those concerns were, signaling the release a more detailed statement next week

The CRWG proposals should be voted for the FFA Extraordinary General Meeting later this month.

If it is considered by the FIFA an interference of the government in the management of this sport, but the global body tends to look faintly whenever governments do it directly.
