The International Football Federation (FIFA) has decided to suspend the membership of the All India Football Federation (AIFF) in the organization.
The FIFA press service reported that the bureau of the organization’s council has temporarily suspended AIFF membership. The corresponding decision was made in connection with the interference of third parties in the activities of the federation. FIFA stressed that AIFF will be able to return to the organization after the cancellation of the order to create an administrative committee.
Due to the suspension of membership, India lost the opportunity to host the Women’s Under-17 World Cup. The planetary championship was to be held from 11 to 30 October.
