Let us inform that the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) had banned the All India Football Federation a few days ago, but now this decision was reconsidered.

After banning the AIFF, FIFA issued a statement saying that the decision to suspend the All India Football Federation was taken due to excessive third party interference.

The statement issued by FIFA further said, “Fifa is taking this decision after receiving confirmation that the Committee of Administrators (COA) established to assume the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee has been abolished and The AIFF administration had gained complete control over the day-to-day affairs of the AIFF.
