    New Suggestion: I-League Pre-Season Cup

    I am suggesting that the AIFF hold a new tournament called the I-League Pre-Season Cup in which we select 3 or 7 I-League clubs to play in a Pre-Season tournament which spans 1 and a half weeks in a city which has no I-League club (like Chennai or Hyderabad). This tournaments goal should be to put these selected I-League teams into the tournament in a country with no I-League teams and then after the marketing and such see if you can get a crowd for most of the games so that you can attract potential owners. Now the 4th or 8th club in the tournament would be a local club.

    So say we were to do this tournament next season. The probable 2012 I-League Pre-Season Cup in the G. M. C. Balayogi Athletic Stadium in Hyderabad

    8 teams: East Bengal FC, Mohun Bagan AC, Pune FC, Shillong Lajong, United Sikkim, Mumbai FC, Dempo SC, HYDERABAD GLOBE (Local Club)

    Separate the teams into 2 groups...
    Group 1: East Bengal, Pune FC, Shillong Lajong, Dempo SC
    Group 2: Mohun Bagan, United Sikkim, Mumbai FC, Hyderabad Globe FC

    Have them play each other once in there group. Then the top 2 teams from each group move on to the Champions Round and the bottom 2 teams move on to the Fifth Place Round.

    1st Place in Group A vs 2nd in Group B
    1st Place in Group B vs 2nd in Group A
    3rd in Group A vs 4th in Group B
    4th in Group A vs 2rd in Group B

    So each team plays 5 games in the end and the people of Hyderabad would have witnessed 20 games in this tournament in 1 and a half weeks. Hopefully this would drive people to the stadium, specially with the added local team.
    nice idea.but this should be marketed well,flood light matches..... And Hyderabad is one of the best place to start with.

    would be a great way to start the season for them as well and also will help promoting the league in virgin football areas as well <!-- s:handgestures-thumbup: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/handgestures/thumbup.gif" alt=":handgestures-thumbup:" title="Thumb Up" /><!-- s:handgestures-thumbup: -->

    The GMC already has floodlights and a capacity 30,000. Only downside is the fact it has no seats.
  • will AIFF spend cash on this tournament & that too in hyderabad & chennai?

    AIFF ACADEMY CUP
    There are less competitions for football academies in India.As a result these younger players get mainly training and much less game exposures.For that AIFF should organise a competition for academies.Those academies who have the required infrastructure , licensed coaching staffs etc..... can only participate in this cup.As arsenalfan mentioned earlier ,it should be made mandatory for the clubs to have 10 youth players in their exact 30 players squad.

    Now, the scouting staffs of each I league club should be made to attend this cup necessarily.After the cup ,there will be an auction for these players in which the i league clubs participate (not compulsory).The main part of the salary of an auctioned player goes to the respective academy - so the academies are happy.Now the clubs have the best READYMADE /b]clubs happy to hear this word as they cant wait for long <!-- s:angry-banghead: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/angry/banghead.gif" alt=":angry-banghead:" title="Bang Head" /><!-- s:angry-banghead: --> [b youth players(mainly u19).After 1 or 2 years ,as I league grow ,the clubs will think that its better financially to have own u19 team , own academy rather than buying these players.So ,its a short term alternative that could change the attitude of clubs towards youth development.

    Even though idea is nice,under current scenario it would be nothing but waste of resources.

    a <!-- s:bow-plusone: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bow/plusone.gif" alt=":bow-plusone:" title="PlusOne" /><!-- s:bow-plusone: --> for this idea
    as per some of the previous post from arsenalfan this was the way it exactly worked in us where all mls clubs initially picked players from such drafts then they thought this and started their own academy....this idea should be given a look by the top body definitely

    Ya I made a suggestion about only that we add the u19 players as well. I know the Academy players will be u16 but if they are the best in India then they should be able to play a bunch of u19 players. Also I did suggest the draft. 2 Drafts actually.

    We should do 2 drafts. One where the team draft around 4-5 players from the AIFF-FIFA Academy and the Second Draft being for BC Roy Trophy players. So we draft guys who are u17 and u19.

    This is for after the I-League gets a new format and more coverage. I am aiming for a 2013 hope for this tournament.

    Also how would it be a waste of resources. It would be 8 teams playing in a city that has no 1st or 2nd Division I-League teams and its only pre-season, not an actual cup.
