The Basque Federation explains that the argument of the highest body of world football to deny your request it is based on that does not meet the legal criteria set out in the FIFA regulations, since it is an Autonomous Community “and not an independent state recognized by the international community.”

“This same argument has been used by UEFA to reject the application made by the FVF to become a member of that organization,” they add.

The Basque Football Federation, in any case, “does not share the arguments of either of these two resolutions and will continue working in all areas in favor of the officiality, redoubling its efforts to get recognition that our society demands “.
