FIFA Lifts Suspension On AIFF, India To Host U-17 Women's World Cup 2022

FIFA, the world's football governing body, on Friday lifted its suspension on the All India Football Federation. The move means India will remain the hosts for the U-17 Women's World Cup 2022 in October. "The Bureau of the FIFA Council has decided to lift the suspension that was imposed on the All India Football Federation (AIFF) due to undue third-party influence," FIFA wrote in its official release. "The decision was taken after FIFA received confirmation that the mandate of the committee of administrators that was set up to assume the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee had been terminated and that the AIFF administration had regained full control of the AIFF's daily affairs."
