The Baby Leagues project aims to increase participation in football at an earlier age.

The All India Football Federation's (AIFF) baby leagues project is likely to see the first pilot run in Mumbai in early July, more than four months later than it was originally meant to be unveiled as a step to increase participation in football at an earlier age and to encourage greater round-the-year engagement with the sport across the country.

Debayan Sen and Arjun Namboothiri talk about AIFF's amendment in its constitution and how it affects the national sports code.

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has, in several recent amendments to its constitution, sought to significantly expand the powers of its honorary president in a manner that, at worst, could violate the proposed national sports code and at the least be a workaround for some of the limitations the federation would face under it.

The incumbent - someone who'd given "meritorious service to football" - would be allowed to participate in general body meetings of the AIFF, as well as represent it...
