Perú's spot in WC 2018 safe

Peru's spot in next year's World Cup is NOT at risk despite reports

November 24, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
A host of teams including Italy, The Netherlands and Chile had hopes of being chosen to replace Los Incas, but their hopes have ended today.

Peruvian fans can keep calm: their spot in Russia 2018 is not at risk.

Reports by numerous sources claimed that a bill proposed by congress member Paloma Noceda could force FIFA to ban Peru from playing in next year's World Cup, as it implied the Peruvian government to have their say in all matters decided by the Football Federation of the South American side.

In a press release issued today, Noceda denied these reports, as she revealed the Peruvian government would not be involved in all decisions made by the Peruvian Football Federation.

"The Peruvian Football Federation has never been included in our project. The FPF has never been considered to be ruled by the Peruvian Institute of Sports. There was some sort of misunderstanding on this matter, the future of professional football in our country will still be decided by the FPF authorities," Noceda stated.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport, joined by Spanish journals Marca and As hinted that Perú's place in the tournament would be at risk due to FIFA's policy of not allowing local governments having their hands involved in football. Immediately, fans proposed Italy, the Netherlands and Chile to take Perú's place in the competition, but their hopes were built up in smoke.
