In the Indian football community, Mr Lalnghinglova Hmar, the secretary of the Mizoram Football Association, is regarded as a visionary. He was instrumental in launching the Mizoram Premier League in 2012, which is currently recognized as one of the success stories of Indian football.

The 44-year-old Hmar, who taught history before switching to journalism, was instrumental in founding the Mizoram Premier League in 2012. He also unsuccessfully contested the sole Mizoram seat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. He led for recently a lengthy and creative meeting of the League Committee after which he spoke to the AIFF about the goals and aspirations of his committee and the AIFF as a whole to promote Indian football together.

“The plan is to have a kind of proper structure where we have to know where exactly we are at the moment and where we have to reach next season and what are the kind of goals we can set for the future,” said Hmar.

The league committee chairman explained his plan: “This season we cannot do much because we are running out of time and it is a bit late to bring immediate change in the structure. But going forward the plan is to have a four-tier system in Indian club football where we have the ISL as the top, then the Hero I league is the second tier.”

“The third tier will be the now existing Second Division. And then comes the fourth stage, which will of course be the State Associations across the country. All of these are connected, those who do well at State will have a chance to get a form for promotion to the top deck. There should be no confusion about which teams will play which league and what will happen to them if they are relegated. Everyone in Indian football will have a clear idea about that,” said Hmar.

The league committee chairman said the decision not to allow foreign footballers to play in the Hero Second Division League was a conscious decision on the part of his committee. “There is a dearth of good Indian players in crucial positions. We wanted to put an end to this trend,” said Hmar.

“And why blame only the ISL or the I-League? Even if you go to the big state leagues, you will find foreigners playing as forwards or centre-backs. So the problem is if we don’t give the Indian players the opportunity to play, we are not developing as a football nation. So we will appeal to the state associations to also follow the Indian players only system,” said the League Committee chairman.
