FIFA said in a media release that it was confirmed to FIFA that the AIFF administration had gained full control over the day-to-day affairs of the AIFF. FIFA and the AFC will continue to monitor the situation and support AIFF in holding the elections in a timely manner.

Suspension was due to Praful Patel

This suspension was done because of Praful Patel. Praful Patel, who was the President of AIFF, was accused of sitting on the chair of the President’s post even after the completion of the time without conducting elections. Praful’s tenure started from the year 2009 and ended in 2020.

Despite this, he continued to sit on the chair. When the complaint reached the Supreme Court, the court superseded the entire board in May 2022 and constituted a committee to draft a new constitution. (thelostgamer) FIFA banned the AIFF due to delays and non-compliance with international standards governed by the Supreme Court.
