The Under-17 Women’s World Cup “cannot currently be held in India as planned,” FIFA said.

“FIFA is in constant constructive contact with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports in India and is hopeful that a positive outcome to the case may still be achieved.”

The FIFA moves follows the Supreme Court of India’s order on Aug. 3 for the national soccer federation to hold elections for office bearers.
