Extending the horizons of women's football, the AIFF, as part of the FIFA Live Your Goals campaign, conducted six courses across the country in five states, alongwith four FIFA Courses exclusive only for women - FIFA Women's Administrative Course, FIFA Introductory Goalkeeping Course, FIFA Refreshers Course, and the FIFA Youth Course.

AIFF also conducted 13 Grassroots Festivals under the Live Your Goals project wherein more than 1000 girls were trained in the basics of grassroots football.

Meanwhile, 40 Academies applied for Academy Accreditation to play in the U-16 and U-18 Youth Leagues of AIFF, out of which 26 passed, increasing the base of the Player pyramid structure in the nation.
