What’s next?

After going through the above mentioned demands of I league clubs it seems that a proper unified league structure may not get developed immediately. AIFF’s executive council will meet on July 9 to discuss all the issues and finalize a proper action plan for the upcoming three years. Whether I league will get a AFC Champions League spot or had to be satisfied with AFC Cup quota is a question still needs to be answered and AIFF’s Executive council will do just that when they next meet again.
