In the roadmap approved by FIFA-AFC, the winners of the 2022-23 I-League will automatically be included in the previously closed league, with relegation taking effect from the 2024-25 season. But with the financial shock of COVID-19, the marketing partners of the AIFF (FSDL) have asked for it to be postponed for two years. However, the I-League clubs want the original agreement to be respected.

The I-League clubs want the AIFF to notify in writing that the I-League winners will be promoted to the ISL as per the 2022-23 I-League rules from October 29. Representatives of ISL champions Jamshedpur FC and cup winners Hyderabad FC met FIFA representatives in India during a three-day visit to New Delhi on Thursday. I-League winners Gokulam Kerala and runners-up Mohammedan Sporting were also present.

This is FIFA’s first visit after Kalyan Chaubey took over as president and Shaji Prabhakaran was appointed secretary general.

“We have stressed for the creation of a league with ISL and I-League teams and also inform that if the roadmap is not followed, we can go to court,” Mohammedan official Dipak Singh told the media.

Indian football’s road map, to be announced in December for the new AIFF executive committee after a 100-day management period, may give an idea of ​​the controversies surrounding the ISL’s promotion and relegation.

After hearing the insights of the I-League clubs and even considering the willingness of the I-League clubs to pay the franchise fee to join the ISL, FIFA has taken time to look into the matter.

“In December, indications of that could be there in the new roadmap,” Nodar Akhalkatsi, Director, Strategic Projects & MA Governance, FIFA, said in an interaction with media persons on Thursday.

“We need to work towards finding an acceptable solution taking into account the existing legal framework and the master rights agreement between the AIFF and its marketing partners. The interests of all stakeholders will be explored. FIFA would act as a facilitator to find an acceptable solution. “

“FIFA cannot force itself unless our help is sought. AIFF is willing to engage with us and has sought our help, which is why we have flown to India.” he added.

“We will seek to achieve a realistic goal within the framework we have,” Prabhakaran who was present in the interaction said.

However, in the end, it appeared that FIFA-AFC is considering the previously announced roadmap, while they have yet to clarify the details of the process.
