FIFA lifts suspension on AIFF, confirms India to host Women’s U-17 World Cup in Oct 2022

New Delhi: World football governing body FIFA on Friday lifted the ban imposed on the All India Football Federation (AIFF) after the Supreme Court terminated the mandate of the Committee of Administrators (CoA).

The Bureau of the FIFA Council has decided to lift the suspension that was imposed on the All India Football Federation (AIFF) due to undue third-party influence.

The decision was taken after FIFA received confirmation that the mandate of the committee of administrators that was set up to assume the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee had been terminated and that the AIFF administration had regained full control of the AIFF’s daily affairs. FIFA and the AFC will continue to monitor the situation and will support the AIFF in organising its elections in a timely manner.

As a consequence, the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022™ scheduled to take place on 11-30 October 2022 will be held in India as planned.

Union Youth Affairs & Sports Minister Anurag Thakur took to Twitter and wrote: “Delighted to share the Bureau of the FIFA Council decided today to lift the suspension of the AIFF with immediate effect.

The FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022 scheduled to take place on 11-30 October 2022 will be held in India as planned !”
