AIFF to evaluate bids of 4 new clubs for I-League on Aug 18

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The All Football Federation's (AIFF) bid evaluation committee will meet on August 18 to decide the fate of four new clubs from Kerala, Karnataka, and that are keen to participate in the 2017-18 I-League.

Bengaluru's Ozone FC and Kerala's Gokulam FC are two of the four teams who have submitted the bid documents, a senior I-League official said.

"The decision will be taken on August 18," he said.

The I-League has never seen participation from and in its 10 years' history.

If Ozone FC, which competes in I-League second division, makes the cut then there will be two teams from in I-League and ISL.

FC have opted for ISL after it was given an official status of an AFC Cup berth as both the tournaments will run parallel after AIFF's plan failed.

If Gokulam FC's bid is accepted, they will be the first team from after Chirag United were relegated in 2011- 12.
