FIFA's suspension effect on Indian football?

News Patiala 16th August 2022
                FIFA has suspended the All Indian Football Federation (AIFF) with immediate effect. The suspension by FIFA is due to third-party interference in the All Indian Football Federation. Let us tell you that recently the Supreme Court of India dissolved the AIFF in May and the running of the game. A three-member committee was appointed to amend the constitution of AIFF and hold the pending elections for 18 months. This is why FIFA had to decide on the suspension.

This suspension of FIFA has affected Indian football

With this suspension of FIFA, the biggest blow to India is that the hosting of the Under-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in October has been taken away from it. This event was to be held between October 11 and 30. It is not only India that has hosted the U-17 World Cup. Apart from this, the Indian men’s and women’s teams will not be able to take part in any international matches. While this suspension is in effect.

Further, with the effect of this decision, the Indian Football Club AFC Women’s Club Championship (AFC Women Club Championship) and F.C. Cup and AFC will not be able to take part in competitions like the Championship (AFC Champions League). But, this suspension resulted in domestic tournaments such as the Indian Football Club. Super League (ISL) and I-League will not be affected. These tournaments will be conducted as per their schedule.

Relief from the suspension may be available soon

But, AIFF may get rid of this suspension soon. Because earlier this month, an Indian court ordered the elections to be held immediately and said the elected committee would be an interim body for a period of three months.

The AIFF elections, before chaired by FIFA council member Praful Patel, were to be held by December 2020. But it was delayed by a deadlock over amendments to its constitution. The loss of the Indian Football Association had to bear.
