FIFA reverses India’s ban, U-17 World Cup to go forward
World soccer’s governing body FIFA announced on Friday that it had removed the ban imposed on the All India Football Federation (AIFF) earlier this month owing to improper third-party influence. The Under-17 Women’s World Cup is set to take place in India from October 11-30. It will now go forward as planned now that the country’s participation has been reinstated. As a condition of reinstatement, FIFA stated that the AIFF’s administration must restore complete control of the organization’s day-to-day operations. And that the suspension would end once the order to set up the CoA was rescinded.
AIFF Acting General Secretary Sunando Dhar had earlier this week told FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura that the Supreme Court had ordered the complete cancellation of the CoA mandate. It is to guarantee that the AIFF would have complete control over its day-to-day operations.
Following “confirmation that the mandate of the Committee of Administrators that was put up to assume the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee had concluded,” FIFA lifted its ban, according to a statement released by the organisation. The Asian Football Confederation and FIFA will keep an eye on developments. And help the AIFF schedule elections as soon as possible. Due to a stalemate over proposed constitutional changes, the AIFF elections. They were previously chaired by FIFA Council member Praful Patel, have been postponed until December 2020.
