Gokulam FC
The Kerala-based club has been asked to change their name before being inducted into the I-League…

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) handed a direct entry to Gokulam FC on Wednesday after the Bid Evaluation Committee met in Delhi.

The Kerala-based club met the financial criterion however, they were asked to alter their fan in order to find resonance with the fans in God’s own country.

Gokulam FC are keen to recruit players primarily from Kerala.
