AIFF to invite bids for new I-League teams
SHILLONG: Fresh from the all-round success of Bengaluru FC’s debut season in the I-League, the All India Football Federation will invite bids for new clubs to participate in the 2014-15 season.
“The invitation to tender sets out the details on how the bids are required to be submitted and can be obtained from AIFF Headquarters from May 6,” the AIFF said on its website.
JSW had successfully bid for an I-League team from Bangalore and won the title in convincing fashion in their very first season while also building a very enviable support base.
In order to expand the reach of the sport, the AIFF “may give preference at its own discretion to bids received from clubs/entities who want to operate from non-I-League cities”, such as Ahmedabad, Baroda and Chennai, the website stated.
