To give women’s football a refreshed look and create improved economic opportunities, the AIFF’s has taken up the task of revamping the Hero Indian Women’s League (IWL).

Having arrived at this decision, the Executive committee of the AIFF, which met at the Football House on Friday, April 14, 2023, also stressed its goal to further strengthen Women’s Football in India by rapidly expanding the Hero IWL in the coming seasons.

Each season, the federation hosts the Indian Women’s League (IWL) and a senior national championship, but there hasn’t been a salary structure like there is in the men’s game up until now. With rising TV viewership and record attendance at World Cups, women’s football has advanced quickly in recent years all across the world.

The PSUs were gradually phased out of the top division when the AIFF agreed to a new lucrative commercial deal in 2010, which included the introduction of a new professional league (Indian Super League) in 2014. Footballers experienced significant unemployment as a result of the PSUs’ budget cuts drying up the sports quota positions.

The executive committee meeting will also cover a variety of other topics, such as the creation of a new grassroots program, the proposal to establish a separate organisation for professional refereeing, the completion of the AIFF’s annual budget for 2023–2024, accreditation of academies, and the proposal to create an audit committee, among others.
