FIFA has suspended India’s football association owing to “undue interference from third parties.”
This means that the country will not host the women’s Under-17 World Cup as scheduled on October 11.
In May, the All India Football Federation was disbanded by India’s highest court, and a three-person committee was chosen to oversee the sport.
The federations that make up FIFA must be free from governmental and political intervention.
The Asian Football Confederation and FIFA have met with Indian football stakeholders and provided the AIFF with a roadmap, which requires it to amend its regulations by the end of July and hold elections by September 15.
FIFA continued, “The suspension will be lifted once an order to establish a committee of administrators to assume the duties of the AIFF Executive Committee has been rescinded and the AIFF administration has fully taken back control of the AIFF’s daily operations.
“FIFA is hopeful that a favorable outcome to the matter may still be obtained and is in constant and constructive touch with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports in India.”
