BEIJING - The All India Football Federation was suspended with immediate effect due to third parties interference, FIFA announced on Monday.

"The suspension will be lifted once an order to set up a committee of administrators to assume the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee has been repealed and the AIFF administration regains full control of the AIFF's daily affairs," said FIFA in a statement.

The ban means that the 2022 U-17 Women's World Cup scheduled in India in October might not be held, and India's national football teams cannot play any international games until the ban is removed.
