Why doesn't India play in the FIFA World Cup?

Currently, the FIFA World Cup is being discussed all over the world.

The FIFA World Cup 2022 is taking place in Qatar, and Qatar has spent billions of dollars on the event.

A total of 32 teams are participating in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

But India is not included in 32 teams, know the reason

India's football team has not been able to qualify for the FIFA World Cup.

Do Not Qualify

Football is not the most popular sport in India, so very few youths join this game.

Less popularity

There is no long-term plan available with the government to promote football in India.

No Plan

Indian team needs better facilities and a good tournament to qualify for FIFA.


There is no proper coordination between the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and the government, due to which both are not able to work together.
