Crisis action taken when FFP comes to the aid of the Afghan Womens Football team and negotiated asylum with No 10 and Rt Hon Priti Patel for all 32-football team members and their families, and then safe passage from Afghanistan to Pakistan. Working with Jonathan Kendrick of Rokit and Andrea Radrizzani Chairman of Leeds United & their foundation Play for Change; we co-ordinated efforts to evacuate the Afghan team from Kabul to Lahore to London. We welcome them to the home of football and look forward to working with them to achieve the best possible future goals for their team.
