Retender announced for new I-League clubs since bidders fail to meet the requirements

Hero I-League

The Bid Evaluation Committee meeting took place today at the Football House, New Delhi. The meeting was attended by the members of the Committee and was chaired by Subrata Dutta, Vice President of AIFF.

Representatives of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) were also present to give their report regarding the evaluation of the bids. Documents related to three bids from three different organizations were placed in front of the Committee viz Gokulam FC (Kerala), Ozone Group (Bengaluru) and Crown Sports (Rajasthan).

It was informed to the house by the representatives of PwC that none of the bidders could meet the requirements of the request for proposal (RFP). Hence, the Committee decided to call a retender for inclusion of corporate teams in the ensuing Hero I-League season.

Ten working days will be given to the bidders to submit their bids. The next meeting of the Bid Evaluation Committee to evaluate the fresh bids would take place in the second week on September.
