The Supreme Court ordered the dissolution of the Committee of Administrators on Monday after the All India Football Federation (AIFF) was recently banned by the world football federation (FIFA) due to "third-party meddling" (CoA). According to the highest court, the ruling is being made in the hope that FIFA will lift the suspension of AIFF and India will host the Under-17 Women's World Cup.

Before the ban was issued, India was slated to host the Under-17 Women's World Cup in October.

The Supreme Court questioned who would run the organisation till the World Cup if the CoA stopped operating during the hearing. Tushar Mehta, the Solicitor General, had responded by indicating that the Secretary General may take over. During the hearing, the judge stated, "It is the importance that the football competition arrives, and remains, in India.

When the court issued its final order, it stated that the acting secretary general will be in charge of day-to-day operations for the time being.
