    It was probably flagged by a fan or an official representative. Next time just avoid the word official! Hope you managed to monetise it a little!

    Too bad, you don't need to use "official" when creating a page about public person/s, you can use words like "we love 1 direction" etc. the main reason why the page was delete is because it contains Official. sorry bro.

    I think is pretty clear:

    Facebook Pages Terms
    The following terms, as well as our Data Use Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, apply to all Pages on Facebook. Additionally, all content on Pages must comply with our Community Standards. You are responsible for ensuring that your Page complies with all applicable laws, statutes, and regulations.
    I. General
    A. A Page for a brand, entity (place or organization), or public figure may be administered only by an authorized representative of that brand, entity (place or organization) or public figure (an "official Page").
    B. Any user may create a Page to express support for or interest in a brand, entity (place or organization), or public figure, provided that it does not mislead others into thinking it is an official Page, or violate someone's rights. If your Page is not the official Page of a brand, entity (place or organization) or public figure, you must:
    i. not speak in the voice of, or post content as though it was coming from, the authorized representative of the Page's subject matter; and
    ii. make clear that the Page is not the official Page of the brand, entity (place or organization) or public figure.

    Probably because "One Direction Official" is a trademarked Band.

    Man that sucks but you can do it again..

    Cheer up man, mistakes will change your path to the right direction once you did it. Now it's easy for you to create a new group as it is usual for you. Hope you will do better now than before.:)

    Just to share my experience. Facebook is a true dictatorship. I had a lot of fanpage deleted (several hundreds of K fans) and its impossible to get it back, the support/contact team will never answer your email or so. Also they just can remove one of your fanpage/group with no reason.
