FIFA Ban on AIFF – When the ban will be lifted? World football governing body FIFA had suspended the All India Football Federation (AIFF) on August 15 for ”undue third party interference”.
This has jeopardize the India’s chances to host the U17 Women World Cup in October. The revocation of AIFF ban and holding the U-17 Women’s World Cup in the country depended on CoA’s exit.
The Supreme Court court on Monday directed that the day-to-day affairs will be run by acting secretary general Sunando Dhar.
As per revised order, there will be no ”eminent footballers” as individual voters, something that violates the FIFA Statuettes. The implication of this order means that former captain Bhaichung Bhutia will have to come from a state unit in order to contest the election. This means unlike earlier time he can’t file his nomination just as an eminent footballer.
In all likelihood FIFA now anytime can lift the ban over India.
