New Delhi [India], November 26 (ANI): The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has decided to allow the participation of the Jharkhand state team in the senior women’s National Football Championships, and the Santosh Trophy.

The AIFF had earlier taken strong exception to the unfortunate state of affairs in the State FA where owing to an internal conflict within the management of the Jharkhand Football Association, the AIFF received two independent teams for both the competitions and henceforth, decided to impose a ban.

However, following the visit of the AIFF Technical Supervisor, and keeping the interest of the players in mind, the football governing body of India decided to allow the participation of the Jharkhand state team

“Following the visit of the AIFF Technical Supervisor, and keeping the interest of the players in mind, the All India Football Federation has decided to allow the participation of the Jharkhand State Team in the Senior Women’s National Football Championships, and the Santosh Trophy,” the AIFF said in a statement.
