New Delhi [India], August 26 (ANI): The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) had banned the All India Football Federation but now this decision can be reconsidered. Bureau of the Council decided on 25 August to lift the suspension of the AIFF with immediate effect. As a consequence, the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022 scheduled to take place on 11-30 October 2022 can be held in India as planned.

The whole controversy that started in Indian football stopped with Praful Patel, who was the President of AIFF. He was accused of sitting on the chair of the presidency even after the completion of the time without holding the election. Praful’s tenure started from the year 2009 and ended in 2020. Despite this, he continued to sit on the chair.

Notably, the complaint of this entire matter reached the Supreme Court. The court superseded the entire board in May 2022 and constituted a committee to frame a new constitution. Earlier, the Centre urged the Supreme Court to end the tenure of the Committee of Administrators (CA) and direct that the day-to-day management of the All India Fonthall Federation shall be looked after by the AIFF administration led by the acting general secretary.

Centre had moved the Supreme Court relating to the decision of the FIFA Council suspending the AIFF with immediate effect, which has stripped India’s right to host the Under-17 Women’s World Cup, scheduled for October.
