Kushal Das, AIFF General Secretary said that Praful Patel will meet and discuss with the I-League club representatives on Wednesday to address the ongoing feud between the two.
“The president is campaigning in Gondia right now. He’s been travelling. He’s campaigning for two things – the Lok Sabha elections, the FIFA council seat. So, he’s been busy. Hopefully, [it will be sorted] before the Super Cup final round.
He said it will be “very difficult” to waive the entrance fee and let I-League clubs into the top tier. “There are clubs paying their franchisee fee. And then if you’re trying to get somebody without paying the franchisee fee right now, then it can lead to problems with the existing clubs. So, when the contractual obligation with the existing clubs gets over after ten years, then it may be considered.
