This ban is imposed on a national level which means Hyderabad FC won’t be able to register any Indian player.

Throughout the ISL 2023-24 season, Hyderabad FC have found themselves embroiled in a saga of financial mismanagement. The club’s reputation has taken a hit due to recurring issues regarding salary payments, with multiple former players and staff members lodging complaints.

Hyderabad FC’s financial woes have had a profound impact on their player roster. Several key figures, including Chinglensana Singh, Nikhil Poojary, Hitesh Sharma, Gurmeet Singh, Mohammad Yasir, and Nim Dorjee, opted to part ways with the club in the winter transfer window.

In March, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) announced a punitive measure against Hyderabad FC, prohibiting the club from registering new players for the upcoming two transfer windows. This decision was prompted by the club’s persistent inability to fulfil its financial obligations, particularly in terms of salary payments to players and staff members. This ban was instigated following a formal complaint lodged by Indian players.

According to reports, several foreign players and former coaching staff raised their concerns with FIFA regarding Hyderabad FC’s failure to fulfil their contractual obligations. Consequently, FIFA announced a ban on Hyderabad FC from registering new players internationally and requested AIFF to ban them at the national level, something which was already in place. Effective immediately, Hyderabad FC will be prohibited from acquiring new players, a move that will undoubtedly have profound implications for the team’s future prospects.

Hyderabad FC find themselves subject to a national ban of two years, a measure devoid of conditional terms. Concurrently, the club remains under an existing transfer ban. However, the recent orders involving players like Nim Dorjee, Nikhil Poojary, and Chinglensana Singh represent a unique development. Regardless of whether the outstanding dues are settled, the ban is set to remain in effect.
