“Through this portal, archers, coaches, officials who want to participate in World Archery or AAI recognized championships, international tournaments, can take affiliation from AAI,” AAI said in a statement.
AAI stated that the petitioners can download the Digital Affiliation Card which will be mandatory to participate in the National Archery Championship or other archery activities.
AAI general secretary Pramod Chandrukar said, “Every player will be given an identity card considering the sports ministry’s guidelines and that too will be under the portal.” The association will be able to host domestic tournaments based on existing data. Entry of the player into the tournament without papers will also be possible from this portal.
World Archery lifted the ban from AAI on 18 January and said that it has asked the Indian Union to update its constitution.
