NEW DELHI: Having a ladies’s workforce has been made obligatory as a part of the All India Football Federation’s (AIFF) licensing standards for golf equipment, the federation’s General Secretary Kushal Das stated. Das added that for now it is just for licences beneath ‘B’ degree, however he hopes that will probably be expanded sooner or later.
“In our licensing criteria, we have put in a criteria for the clubs that they must have a women’s team. Although it’s not in the A or B level, at least it’s a beginning. Hopefully, like our youth development programme, which started off slowly, then picked up pace and is now doing quite well, the same thing will happen with women’s football and more and more clubs will field teams in our national competition — the IWL (Indian Women’s League),” he stated in an AIFF launch.
India might be internet hosting the FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup. Originally scheduled to be held from November 2 to 21, the match has since been postponed to February 17 to March 7 as a result of coronavirus pandemic.
“I think clubs should realise that women’s football is a very important area,” stated Das.
“There is a lot of focus from the federation on women’s football. I think the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2021 will help (in that regard), as will the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022. But the clubs should understand that it is important to focus on women’s football and have a team playing in the IWL.”
The IWL accomplished its fourth season in 2019/20 and 12 groups competed within the match. Gokulam Kerala, whose males’s aspect compete within the I-League, had been topped champions after they beat Manipur-based aspect KRYPHSA within the last.
