I-League and 2nd division I-League at the same time” Das said that all the I-League clubs could not have been accommodated in the top tier (ISL) mostly due to financial reasons He said the top tier will be opened up and expanded to 15-16 teams after six-seven years once the ISL and League 1 clubs become self sustainable financially “There is a wrong perception that the ISL will always remain a closed League Currently there are contractual obligations with ISL clubs and for six-seven years there will be no promotion to ISL That is why we have created the structure called League 1 and then League 2 “Right now ISL clubs are also losing money Our whole idea is in six to seven years ISL clubs will have a sustainable model and they will break even Simultaneously we will create a model which will make League 1 and League 2 teams become financially sustainable by giving them a minimum guaranteed money plus ensuring that all matches of League 1 are telecast live That will allow the clubs to sell their sponsorship and better exploit themselves commercially” “After six-seven years the top tier will be opened up and there can be 15-16 teams and there will be promotions andrelegations That is the time for the existing I-League clubs to join the top tier and till then they have to wait” Das spoke about the budget constraints “From League 1 to ISL the budget changes dramatically Salary budget (for ISL clubs) is 20 crore approximately Clubsspend 16 to 20 crores operational costs is much more staging home matches cost much more So unless there is sustainablemodel in the League 1 clubs they will not be able to survive in ISL and so it does not make sense “There will not be commercial success It is better to have clubs who are not financially able to match with ISL clubs to become financially sustainable in the lower league and attempt to move up when ISL becomes sustainable” Asked about the number of teams the ISL will have from 2017 under the proposed plan he said “The proposal is to make the ISL 10 or 12 teams in 2017-18 season There will be a bidding process open which will be based on sporting criteria (performance in I-League) “There will also be a financial criteria because when you are moving up you will have to be able to match with the ISLclubs Whether there will be 10 or 12 teams in ISL from 2017 onwards will be decided once we open the bidding process andknow the response” Das said he will try to persuade Salgaocar and Sporting to reconsider their decision for the sake of development of football in the country “I was surprised and also saddened that they have decide not to play in the I-League next season Their contribution to Indian football has been significant I thought the road map we proposed was aimed at making clubs sustainable with guaranteed revenue so they can invest in player and fan base development and become financially sound and be able to playin the top League when it opens up “I am meeting them on July 1 to explain our vision and make them understand the structure once again which to my mindis a logical one I understand their emotions but if we play by emotions only we can never achieve progress It has to berational and commercially well thought out” he said Asked what the AIFF will do if the clubs stick to their decision and even decides to be not part of the proposed League 1 from 2017 he said “They have been associated with Indian football for several years and I am confident they willunderstand our vision” Explaining further why a re-structuring of the league system was needed Das said “I-League was started in 2007 with much fanfare with ‘Zee’ channel But it just did not pick up The market will not just take it as a product “It was so bad that when Zee walked out there was nobody to broadcast the I-League matches Only a few local channelsbroadcast some matches That is when IMG-Reliance came on board And after one year we have a mainstream channel in‘Ten Sports’ to broadcast the matches Two years down the line we got a title sponsor So I-League was a product which was suffering from 2007 itself It could not be sold whatever be the reason” He said that the inability of the clubs to build a fan base was also one of the factors that led to I-League’s woes though he hastened to add that it was a collective failure “It may be that the quality of the games was not probably good the infrastructure was not good the clubs were not having their fan base except for the likes of two Kolkata clubs How many came to see a Sporting Clube or Salgaocar match or for that matter even a Dempo match Since they could not build a fan base they could not create a commercial structure that allows them to be sustainable If there is empty stadium there is commercial failure it is as simple as that Broadcasters will not come sponsors will not come Everything falls apart “I would say it is a collective failure I will not say only the clubs are to be blamed or the federation can be blamed We went to many broadcasters to telecast the matches but we cannot force them So saying I-League was not promoted properly by the AIFF is not true” For all the latest Sports News download
