FIFA vs AIFF: Not just the World Cup, Indian tournaments will be canceled if the ban is not lifted

World football governing body FIFA has suspended the Football Federation of India (AIFF) with immediate effect due to third party interference. FIFA took this decision due to serious violations of FIFA’s rules and constitution. The Football Federation of India (AIFF) has faced a suspension from FIFA for the first time in its 85-year history.

The suspension of the AIFF means that the Under-17 Women’s Football World Cup tournament, which was scheduled to be held in the country from October 11 to October 30, will no longer take place on schedule. At the same time, India has also lost its hosting. As long as this ban continues, India’s women’s and men’s football team will not be able to play any international match. At the same time, Indian players will not be able to participate in the league of any other country.
