In 1924 the Maccabi federation applied to join the International Football Association. Maccabi leaders, aware that before being admitted to any international sport organization they have to establish a more inclusive association, formed The Palestine Football Association (PFA) and invitation to join was sent to Palestinian Arab teams. The first meeting of the new football association directorate included fourteen Jewish representatives and one Arab delegate-Ibrahim Nusseibeh of the Arab Sports Club of Jerusalem. However despite his participation in the first directorate session, Nusseibeh's name never again appears in the record of the association, demonstrating the lack of sincere desire by the Jewish committee members fro true integration.
Later PFA adopted Zionism’s blue and white colours and dropped Arabic as one of its languages within three years of its founding. The Zionist anthem “Ha-Tikva” was played alongside Britain’s “God Save the King” at the start of official matches. The Palestine Olympic Committee followed a similar pattern with its nine members, seven of which were Jewish. The exploitation of PFA by the Jewish athletic officials and the continued marginalization of the Arabs was among the Zionist goals, especially after joining FIFA in June 1929; therefore, the Palestinians announced their dissatisfaction with the Jewish practices in seizing this Association.
On 26 April 1927, under the title (Palestine and Olympic Games) the Zionist-oriented Palestine Bulletin published this news:
Our London Correspondent writes us as follows: I was wondering whether Palestine will be represented at the Olympic games which are taking place next year in Amsterdam. I have made special inquiries and I have been informed by the Olympic Committee that only nations who have an Olympic Committee of their own are invited to participate. Consequently, the Palestine Athletic organizations have not received a special invitation, especially as being British Mandated Territory it is assumed that a Palestine delegation will be included in the British delegation. However, I am advised that the Olympic games it must apply to the International Olympic Committee at Lausanne, Switzerland. In order not to be late the application must reach the Committee sometime this summer. 
facilitation to establish the track field in Palestine very soon.
