Gibraltar to celebrate entry into FIFA

Gibraltar rejoiced today at the decision to allow Gibraltar into FIFA.

The Government has already stated there will be an appropriate celebration in the coming weeks.

In a statement from Convent Place it said, ”
Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar congratulates the Gibraltar Football Association on its admission to FIFA.
The Chief Minister, the Hon Fabian Picardo QC MP, said: “The whole of Gibraltar will want to celebrate this decision. Gibraltar is now a full part in its own right of the international football community. This is much deserved, long sought and hard fought recognition of the efforts of the Gibraltarian football fraternity. My warmest and heartiest congratulations to all involved. Michael Llamas spoke not just for all of them but for all of Gibraltar in his gracious and powerful speech upon admission. I very much look forward to celebrating this decision with the whole of Gibraltar in the coming weeks in an appropriate manner that must involve our whole community.”
