The FIFA Council Bureau (www.FIFA.com) has decided to lift the suspension imposed on the All India Football Federation (AIFF) due to excessive influence by third parties.
The decision came after FIFA received confirmation that the mandate of the Committee of Administrators, which was set up to carry out the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee, has been terminated and that the AIFF administration has resumed full control over the day-to-day affairs of the AIFF. FIFA and AFC will continue to monitor the situation and will support the AIFF in organizing the elections in a timely manner.
As a result, the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022™, scheduled to take place from 11-30 October 2022, will be held in India as planned.
