Indian Football Team has been denied clearance by the Indian Olympic Association for participating in the Upcoming Asian games. This means AIFF will have to spend their own money in order to participate in the event. The reason behind this is the low possibility of India winning a medal in football.

Similarly during 2014 games India were initially denied clearance but were later cleared. India performed poorly in the games and failed to score a single goal.
