The state associations has been instructed to set up a league committee which will be responsible for conducting various youth leagues. The inspections of day to day operations of the league along with the rules & regulations will be the responsibility of the league committee.

As per the new guidelines thw unaccredited clubs/academies can now participate in the preliminary rounds of the league. The apex football governing body earlier organised various preliminary rounds of the leagues at the Junior , Sub-Junior and youth levels.

This will provide ample opportunity to the state associations to be a part of the grasaroot development programs of the AIFF.
