Though officials would not give any clue as to what the outcome will be, it is widely believed that the exercise which required national associations to satisfy certain criteria, including a nationally based activity and characteristics, will almost certainly lead to the deletion of some associations from the register.
According to a release from NSC, the press conference this afternoon will centre exclusively on that exercise and will reveal which bodies can now qualify as a national sports association. It is also expected that the NSC will explain the procedures that they have taken throughout the exercise while journalists may ask question for further clarifications. The press conference is at midday.]]>
