Panjab National Football Team under the Panjab Football Association are now members of Confederation of Independent Football Associations (CONIFA).
The time has come for Panjab to showcase and develop the footballing talents of the community and now has the chance to play International Football.
ConIFA, the Confederation of Independent Football Associations, is the football federation for all associations outside FIFA. It’s a global acting non-profit organization that supports representatives of international football teams from nations, de-facto nations, regions, minority peoples and sports isolated territories. ConIFA was founded on the 7th of June 2013, and organized his first World Football Cup in June 2014 in Ostersund, Sweden.
Under CONIFA, Panjab national football team will be gracing the field of football, going head to head against other community nations.
Panjab national football team will play against other national communities both home and away, some as far as Asia, North America and across Europe.
We will shortly be announcing the upcoming fixtures for Panjab for all the Panjabi people to enjoy and embrace this monumental historic moment together. Click here to find information regarding fixtures and results
