FIFA BAN AIFF: The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) had banned the All India Football Federation. But now this decision can be reconsidered. According to media reports, FIFA may soon lift the ban on Indian football. However, no official statement has come about this yet. FIFA imposed the ban due to third party interference in AIFF.
After banning the AIFF, FIFA had said in its statement that due to excessive interference by third parties, it has been decided to suspend the All India Football Federation. FIFA also said that this suspension will be lifted only when they start working together. But now news is coming that the ban on AIFF can be removed. According to media reports, FIFA is reconsidering its decision.
The whole controversy that started in Indian football stops on Praful Patel, who was the President of AIFF. He was accused of sitting on the chair of the presidency even after the completion of the time without conducting elections. Praful’s tenure started from the year 2009, which ended in 2020. Despite this, however, he continued to sit on the chair.
Significantly, the complaint of this entire matter reached the Supreme Court. The court had superseded the entire board in May 2022 and constituted a committee to frame a new constitution.
