Chennai City owner Rohit Ramesh and E. Sugumaran have been elected as the president and secretary of Chennai Football Association (CFA) respectively in the annual general meeting held in Chennai on Saturday. The new office bearers have got the mandate for the next four years. 

Ramesh beat Gokulam Kerala president VC Praveen by a significant margin, gaining 81 votes in his favour. After stepping into his new shoes he has already set his eyes on a facelift for the local leagues. His next agenda is to work closely with the Tamil Nadu football association for the progress of the sport in the state. 

The newly-elected president has brushed away any concerns of 'conflict-of-interest' as he is also the owner of I-League club Chennai City FC
