"The AFC, in its reply, has stated is extremely pleased with the offer."
New Delhi, May 2 - The All India Football Federation - has expressed interest in hosting the AFC U-16 Championship Finals in 2016.

The AIFF believes the championship can serve as a precursor to India hosting the 2017 U-17 FIFA World Cup in 2017.

The AFC U-16 Finals will not only help the Indian team to gain valuable competitive experience but simultaneously help in evaluating the organisational abilities of the venues.

AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das has officially approached Dato Alex Soosay, General Secretary of the Asian Football Confederation, and Dato Windsor John, Deputy General Secretary, AFC, mentioning India's eagerness.

The AFC, in its reply, has stated is extremely pleased with the offer.

However, the bidding for the 2016 competition will officially open after the completion of the AFC U-16 Finals in Thailand in September 2014, and relevant documents need to be submitted by November 2014.
