FIFA lifts international competition ban on Iran

ZURICH, Switzerland -- FIFA officially lifted Iran's ban from international competition Wednesday after the soccer governing body was assured by Iranian officials that the sport would be free of political interference.

FIFA said it held "a series of cooperative negotiations" and the sides agreed to create a provisional board within the Iranian soccer federation. It will draft and pass new statutes for the body and hold leadership elections.

Iran was suspended from international competition in November after FIFA accused the government of interfering in the federation's affairs.

The suspension was temporarily lifted by FIFA last month, allowing the team to defend its Asian Games title.
