    Officials will travel to Zurich this month to meet with FIFA executives.

    "The delegation will seek approval to lift the ban on holding official matches in our stadiums," federation member Abdul-Khaliq Massoud said Monday. "We hope that the FIFA officials will reply positively to our request."
