2010 FIFA suspension[edit]

On 11 May 2010, the FIFA Emergency Committee suspended the Salvadoran Football Association (FESFUT) on account of government interference. This decision by FIFA was based on the fact that the statutes ratified by the FESFUT general assembly in August 2009 had not been formally entered in the country's official register, and that the government had failed to acknowledge the authority of the Normalisation Committee set up to represent FESFUT.

On 25 May, El Salvador, which had qualified for both of the men's and women's 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games, were disqualified and be not included in the draw due to its suspension by FIFA over governmental interference in the affairs of the country's soccer federation.[9]

On 7 June, the CONCACAF lifted the ban, and allowed the male & female U-21 teams to participate once again in the CAC games.[10][11]
