The All India Football Federation (AIFF) suffered a huge blow in Supreme Court today as the apex court refused to stay the Delhi High Court order that quashed election of All India Football Federations’s (AIFF) office bearers. On November 8 the AIFF approached to the Supreme Court challenging a decision of the Delhi High Court to cancel the results of elections held in December last year. A bench headed by Justice J. Chelameswar and Abdul Nazeer heard the matter from both parties, and ultimately refused to give stay order on Delhi High Court’s decision. It means that the fresh election should be done within five months time.
The apex court further added that it will appoint two ombudsman, Ex-CEC S Y Quraishi and an eminent footballer to implement the orders of Delhi High Court for reforming constitution of the Indian football body.
