The Centre can tell the Supreme Court to fuck off. The Court created the mess in the first place. They can solve it themselves.

I don't think so.

The bench in its order stated, "Solicitor General has informed the court that government of India is in active engagement with FIFA and stakeholders to ensure Under-17 World Cup in the country as planned. The meeting happened on Tuesday and discussions are ongoing.

Arre calm down na; the issue is completely political now. In all probability Sarvanand Sonowal will be the next Prez; and since the GoI is directly intervening the matter should be over in a while and Sonowal would be lauded as the 'hero'. How many of you know that India is also planning to host 2027 AFC Asian Cup? There is massive ground to gain and money to be made here .....

My only hope is that the next Prez would at the very least do something about 'football'; to get eliminated at the group stage at AFC 2027 would be an utter embarrassment in front of the home crowd.

The government and private companies should do something about India's football progress.

If Mali ranks 46 (top 50) in FIFA rankings why can't India?

How many players belonging to their regular squad have dual citizenship? We don't have that luxury; it would require continuous heavy investment on youth development throughout a decade at the least to do it the hard way. There is no easy way here since top down approaches do not work across team sports. Cheenis dominate across a lot of sports and yet their football team is so bad that they could not beat India back in 2018; that too at their home turf and very recently lost to freaking Vietnam.

More politicians than footballers in fray for Indian football body’s top job


Elections to the post of president of All India Football Federation (AIFF) will be held on 28 August, necessitated by the exit of Praful Patel.

Former team India captain Bhaichung Bhutia (45) and former Mohun Bagan and East Bengal goalkeeper-turned-politician Kalyan Chaubey (45), who unsuccessfully contested the 2021 West Bengal polls from Maniktala seat, are the only contenders for the top job who have played professional football.
Then there is Congress leader Manvendra Singh, who is the son of former Union minister late Jaswant Singh and president of Rajasthan Football Association (RFA). Others in the fray include football expert and president of Delhi Football Association, Shaji Prabhakaran, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s brother Ajit Banerjee and Karnataka Congress MLA N.A. Haris.

Valanka Natasha Alemao, who contested Goa Assembly polls earlier this year on an All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) ticket, is the only woman candidate who has filed her nomination for AIFF presidential polls.

#SupremeCourt will shortly pass an order on #AIFF.
So far->
Centre: Disband CoA to save tournament
CoA: Tournament may or may not take place but court orders must be honoured
Bhaichung Bhutia: Tournament can be sacrificed but not the reforms

SC order:
* CoA dissolved
* Day to day affairs to be managed by acting secretary general
* Election extended by a week from earlier fixed date of Aug 28

Stupid decision by SC. Would have shown FIFA who is the boss in India. Now FIFA thinks that it can push India around.
Substantial siphoning of AIFF funds by former management: CoA
