Why FIFA Banned The All India Football Federation & What It Means

Indian Football

All India Football Association (AIFF) found itself in the midst of a storm in 2022, when FIFA imposed a ban on its daily operations due to third-party interference. The ban was a major blow to Indian football as India will host the U-17 Women’s World Cup later in the year and the ban would mean the tournament would have to be relocated to a different host country. However, the ban was eventually lifted after changes were made to the AIFF’s administrative hierarchy.

This article takes a look at the situation leading up to the ban, its impact, and the future prospects of AIFF and Indian football.

Dates and a list of events are included at the end of the article for easy reference to the timeline of events that occurred in this epic.
