    It needs a lot of improvements no doubt but what it was earlier it is far better than that.Any regular in YBK would agree to that and most of that are done during Argentina match.<br>

It would be a nice finish to a long and tiring season for Barcelona or even Inter Milan and it would still bring 100,000 people to the stands and that would give media hype to the I-League as well. Perfect for an end-of-season game.</div>

    I think AIFF is planning something like that.But I doubt clubs like Barcelona would agree to play with I League all star 11.At least we need something to compete with this shitty IPL.At least we can attract some corporates with 100k people at ground.<br>

    @arsenalfan you are geting carried away. This is a commercial event and has nothing to do with Indian football. So stop complaining about it unles u wanna increase ur post count. Its not AIFF who is organizing it.

    <br><div><br></div><div>Its not impossible. Obviously a club like Barcelona or Inter Milan would demand more than 70% of the ticket revenue and...</div><div><br></div><div>1) Barcelona or Inter Milan would spread there brand around India and the fans of Kolkata and thus make new fans as well which equals more marketing opportunities and more money for them to even spread there brand further.</div><div><br></div><div>2) I-League would get much needed media attention along with the leagues best players and obviously the All-Star team would include Subrata Pal, Raju Gaikwad, Sunil Chhetri (yes he was shit this season but he is the most popular Indian football at this moment), and Jeje Lalpekhlua and Manandeep Singh and maybe if they do well then it would increase there chances of getting scouted. (Yes I am aware that you could use the Bayern game as an argument to show that scouting does not happen).</div><div><br></div><div>3) This is at the end of the season. The players are tired, they have the Euros next month, they want to do small vacations before they have to report to there teams in June. Is a final match against two top sides what they need.</div>

    There is a bad news. Kushal Das has quashed the possibility of holding the match in such a short notice. For these kind of matches, the permission should be sought 1  month in advance from the sports ministry acc to the rule, which is not possible
