Wiking’s IFAF Faction Suspends Six Nations Including the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Japan

Yesterday, the IFAF split grew a little wider when the Tommy Wiking-led Paris IFAF Congress suspended six of the world’s leading American football federations for non-compliance with his IFAF’s newly instated anti-doping rules.

USA Football (United States), Football Canada (Canada), Japanese American Football Federation (Japan), Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Americano (Mexico), Dansk Amerikansk Fodbold Forbund (Denmark), and the Suomen Amerikkalaisen Jalkapallon Liitto (Finland) were suspended for refusing to submit information related to athletes for the selection of a Registered Testing Pool (RTP).

None of the suspended nations recognize Mr. Wiking’s IFAF as the international governing body for American football since his controversial non-resignation in the spring of 2015.

For more background on the IFAF split and the history of IFAF’s recent troubles read here.

    If you go to IFAF facebook (Wiking faction), you can find what a joke Paris confernce really was. Compare participants to member federations in member federations and you find that most representatives are not even members.

    Why are there no comments / reports from the other IFAF congress in NY?
    No statements of affected federations?
    And what is the current stage of litigations at the CAS?
    Thanks for the ongoing information and please continue to provide the transparency that is otherwise sorely missing from the federations!

    Maybe this means that in New York they have made desicions that needs approvals from national federations? Hopefully somebody informs at some point. It would be interesting to know what Federations were represented in New York.
