The Indian Football Association, shortened as IFA, is the association that regulates affiliation football in the territory of West Bengal, India. It is the most seasoned Football Association in India and was established in 1893. Among the organizers was previous England global Elphinstone Jackson.
In opposition to the name, the affiliation does not regulate the diversion in India, an undertaking that tumbles to the All India Football Federation (AIFF). Be that as it may, before the development of the AIFF the IFA was in accepted control of football in India by uprightness of its organization by Englishmen and also its alliance to the Football Association of England. The IFA was instrumental in making the AIFF administer football on a National premise.
Clubs from outside West Bengal grumbled about the absence of non-partisanship in the issues of the IFA. This frustration of clubs and benefactors prompted the arrangement of affiliations, for example, the Western Indian Football Association, which liked to be administered independently from anyone else instead of by the IFA. Afterward, the IFA helped shape the AIFF.
