The I-League clubs have suggested a few changes to the Indian FA with regards to the league and hope that they are being considered for the coming season…

I-League Professional Football Clubs Association (IPFCA) have proposed a modifications to the existing rules and regulations of the league.

In their bid to promote youth, the clubs have suggested that 50% of the players registered by a team must be U-19. This would encourage the U-19 players to work hard to breakthrough into the senior side and would also go a long way in bringing down the budget of the teams.

“Each I-League club’s first team should consist of not more than 50 players of which minimum 50% (i.e. 25 players) should be U-19 players. When a club registers 30 players for the I-League, they should register the 25 senior players and should be permitted to play any of the registered u-19 players to play in the I-League,” stated the IPFCA’s letter.

The clubs have strongly urged that players who have more than 6 months in their contract, negotiations for his transfer must be done with the club to negotiate a transfer fee. There is a belief that the interest levels in the sport would increase with transfer fees and opens another avenue for revenue generation for them.

“In India there are some logistical problems which hamper the actual implementation of the transfer market. Clubs do not know if the player who they are interested is in the last 6 months of his contract. The All India Football Federation (AIFF) currently has all the contracts of all I-League players and should come up with a simple list which includes a player’s name and when his contract with the his existing club ends,” the clubs suggested.
