The Pakistan Football Federation has decided to initiate legal action against the organisers of a planned series against India in England which was postponed for the second time last month.
A PFF official said a letter has been sent to Touch Skysports which had taken the rights of the series and was to host the series in September in England.
The Pakistan and Indian football federations had agreed to play the three-match series in July-August this year but the series was then reduced to two matches in September after the first postponement by the organisers.
But hours after the PFF announced its team and captain for the series, the UK-based organisers again postponed the series for an indefinite period.
"The series is now as good as cancelled as far as understand we have asked the organisers for a settlement for the financial losses caused to us and also for an apology for the inconvenience and embarrassment we have suffered because of the series not being held on schedule," the official said.
Another source said the PFF President Saleh Faisal Hayat had also spoken to officials in the Asian football Confederation and then decided to send the letter to Touchsky sports seeking a settlement and apology.
"We have sent a letter to the head of the TSS and if we don't get the settlement and apology we can initiate legal action against them," he added.
