The bureau of the FIFA council has unanimously decided to suspend the All India Football Federation (AIFF) with immediate effect due to undue influence from third parties, which constitutes a serious violation of the FIFA statutes.

The suspension will be lifted once an order to set up a committee of administrators to assume the powers of the AIFF executive committee has been repealed and the AIFF administration regains full control of the AIFF’s daily affairs.

The suspension means that the FIFA U-17 women’s world cup 2022, scheduled to take place in India on October 11-30, cannot currently be held in India as planned.

Football’s global body is assessing the next steps with regard to the tournament and will refer the matter to the bureau of the council if and when necessary.

FIFA is in constant constructive contact with the union ministry of youth affairs and sports in India and is hopeful that a positive outcome to the case may still be achieved.
