The All India Football Federation (AIFF) President, Praful Patel confirmed that India has made a bid to host the FIFA Club World Cup in 2015. This comes as another encouraging sign for Indian football, after the country was recently successful in their bid to host the Under-17 World Cup.

"I can confirm that we have made a bid for the Club World Cup for the year 2015. I will be flying to the FIFA headquarters next year to strengthen the chances of our bid and hopefully by next year we will get to know whether we are successful in our bid or not," Patel said.

"I think we have a good chance. We have made a good case for our bid and by the middle of next year the results will be out," he concluded.
