The India women's national football team is controlled by the All India Football Federation and represents India in women's international football competitions. The women's football scene didn't have the same chance to spread as the men's game did, and thus the team struggles to keep up with more talented international squads such as China and Japan. However, India is beginning to recover from this jump-start, and is growing stronger with each year. The women's team will return to the field on September 7, 2012, from nearly a yearlong hiatus. They were re-established on November 2009 for a 2-month training camp.[1]

Tarun Roy was appointed as head coach in the June, 2014.

History

The first manager was Sushil Bhattacharya, in 1975.[2]

The brand new start for Indian Women's football

In March 2011 India Women began a brand new chapter that would see them improve.[3] They participated in the qualifiers for the 2012 Olympics in March 2011. In their first match they beat rivals and group hosts Bangladesh 3–0. Then in the second round India Women played Uzbekistan where they tied the first match 1–1 but lost the second leg 1–5 and were officially knocked out.
