AIFF President Kalyan Chaubey and General Secretary Dr. Shaji Prabhakaran, on their visit to Doha, met with QFA President Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Bin Ahmed Al-Thani, Senior Board Members and Secretary General Mansoor Al-Ansari at the QFA office on Sunday to discuss a strategic alliance for the mutual benefit of football in both India and Qatar.

Speaking after the meeting, Chaubey said, “I would like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the QFA President for his valuable time to discuss cooperation opportunities between India and Qatar. I am sure this would be beneficial to both countries in the long run. “

Both the AIFF president and general secretary had traveled to Doha earlier this week and had on Friday met FIFA president Gianni Infantino to discuss the way forward for Indian football. The All India Football Federation (AIFF) earlier in September announced the name of its president in its 85-year history, with Kalyan Chaubey defeating the legendary Bhaichung Bhutia in the election for the top post.

The 45-year-old Chaubey, a former goalkeeper with Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, won 33-1 as former Indian football captain Bhutia lost the election and got just 1 vote.

Earlier in August, FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) had imposed suspension on AIFF (All India Football Federation) due to “third party involvement”. Following the decision, the AIFF lost all FIFA membership rights, including the ability to host the U-17 Women’s World Cup in October.

Indian football teams were not permitted to compete in foreign events and neither the AIFF nor any of its members or officials could benefit from FIFA or AFC development programmes, courses or training.

The ban was lifted in August itself after FIFA received confirmation that the mandate of the Committee of Administrators, set up to assume the powers of the AIFF Executive Committee, had been revoked and that the AIFF administration had regained full control over the day-to-day affairs of the AIFF.
