The All India Football Federation (AIFF) reiterates that the Premier Futsal is not recognised by the AIFF. Futsal, as per the AIFF constitution, is governed by the federation. The All India Football Federation plans to start its own futsal tournament this year along with its marketing partner Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL).

In this regards, the Federation has also written to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) for support in structuring a National Futsal Tournament to be launched this year.

The AIFF is also instructing all its affiliate units not to allow players who are registered with the affiliates to participate in this unauthorised and unofficial Futsal league.
