Four teams entered the final round of the qualifiers, to fight for the one spot in the upcoming I-League...

Rajasthan United FC have qualified for the I-League 2021-22 after the final round was played among Delhi FC, Kenkre FC, Madan Maharaj and Rajasthan.

Delhi and Madan Maharaj fell out of contention in the penultimate matchday of the final round, while Rajasthan only needed a point to earn their promotion in their final round-robin group game against Kenkre.

Out of the 18 teams nominated by their respective state associations, nine were selected to partake in the qualifiers from the preliminary rounds, among whom Bangalore United, Kerala United, ARA FC, Rynith FC and Corbett FC failed to make it to the final round.

Which teams are in the final round of the I-League Qualifiers 2021? 

Team Local League Preliminary round
Delhi FC Delhi Senior Division League 1st, Group B
Kenkre FC MDFA Elite Division, Maharashtra 2nd, Group B
Madan Maharaj Madhya Pradesh Premier League 1st, Group A
Rajasthan United R-League A Division, Rajasthan 2nd, Group A

A total of 10 teams were selected by the AIl India Football Federation (AIFF) for the I-League Qualifiers 2021 through the state leagues. In case a state had nominated two teams, only one would have been selected, based on meeting AIFF's financial requirements and completion of the club licensing criteria.

Of the 10 teams that were selected, the AIFF later decided to withdraw Hyderya Sports FC, runners up of Jammu & Kashmir Professional League, after finding the bank guarantee submitted by them to be not genuine.
