The Football Federation of India (AIFF) has received support from the Sports Authority of India and the Ministry of Sports for plans to send the Women’s National Team to the 2027 FIFA World Cup.
The detailed plan developed by the AIFF, endorsed and endorsed by the two bodies, will constitute a concrete and actionable roadmap that will work towards the development of the women’s national team and will qualify for the largest women’s soccer event in 2027. Supporting the development, AIFF President Praful Patel is convinced that the women’s team is more likely to qualify for the World Cup before the men’s.
AIFF Secretary General Kushal Das in an interview told PTI: “We have put together a detailed plan for the (current) U-18 girls in our attempt to qualify for the 2027 World Cup. The plan has been endorsed and supported by the Ministry of Sports and the SAI, for which we are eternally grateful. ”.
With the goal of its growth in mind, the federation has been working on the comprehensive development of women’s football in the country. Efforts have been evident, with the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup to be held in India during October and November 2022. The tournament was scheduled for 2021, but the pandemic forced organizers and AIFF to postpone it for a year. Along with the U-17 World Cup in 2022, India is also slated to host the 2022 edition of the AFC Women’s Asian Cup.
Speaking of the U-17 World Championship in 2022, it seems certain that the event will leave a legacy that will allow women to enjoy sport more and bring a paradigm shift in sports culture in India.
Said that “We want to bring this message to all the girls who aspire to practice this sport, that the football federation supports them and wants to see them compete at the highest level.”
