FIFA reportedly lifts suspension of the All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Friday.

Recall that The AIFF had been plagued by governance issues, and was subsequently suspended on August 19 by FIFA “due to undue influence from third parties” But Friday saw that FIFA Council lifted the suspension after a temporary mandate of administrators proved successful.

Meanwhile, AIFF have now been handed back full control of daily affairs pending fresh elections and FIFA 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 now hold in India as planned.”
