Aug 13, 2017-Demobilized fighters from Colombia’s leftist Farc rebels want to form a professional league football club, officials said on Friday. The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia have disarmed under a peace deal after a half-century conflict. “We received about 10 days ago an official message... from the Farc, who want to talk with the Colombian football authorities about taking part in the professional game,” Jorge Perdomo, president of Colombian football’s organizing body Dimayor said on Blu Radio.
