Estimated read time: Less than a minute

NEW DELHI — India's top court is expected to take up a government plea to settle issues that led to the national soccer federation's suspension by FIFA and the possible loss of its hosting rights for the Under-17 Women's World Cup in October. FIFA's decision to suspended the All India Football Federation follows the Supreme Court of India's appointment of a three-member Committee of Administrators to manage the affairs of the soccer federation and to conduct elections under a new constitution by the end of August. A top government law officer has urged the court to take up the matter urgently.
