    I dont think its a bad amount. Consider the fact that MDFA is organizing even 3rd division with so much of interest!
  • Wow. That is still a lot of money for what can be considered the 6th Tier of Football in India. Most teams in the 6th tier of football in England dont get that much. In America they dont get anything at all.

    i was planning to go for the final but they kept that match on 24th only at afternoon or else would have surely made a visit...
    but just was amazed to know that there were stretch of 655 league games played to finalise the winner of 3rd division really the organisers are doing some great stuffs in organizing the event and maintaining the stats properly too...

    Now the interesting thing is that both air india and mumbai fc hadnt played a match this season in elite division as per my knowledge...<div>May be MDFA or WIFA have disallowed i-league teams from participating or the schedule didnt allowed them to play in this tournament..</div><div><br></div><div>Whatever may be the reason i loved this decision </div><div><br></div><div>And congrats to ONGC </div>

    ONGC is proving its worth for I-league, as per the results goes. ONLY IF they could fulfil the AFC criteria.
