The All India Football Federation (AIFF) will conduct a Club Licensing Workshop on July 7, 2015 for all the Hero I-League clubs. CEOs, Directors along with Finance Officers from the respective clubs are invited by the I-League Department for this particular workshop which is scheduled to take place tomorrow at AIFF Football House.

The first session of the day will be on Financial Criteria of the Indian Club Licensing Regulations which will go on till 12.00 IST. Salary cap for players, future financial report and many more minute details are going to be discussed in this session while club officials’ queries would be entertained too. The second session of the day will stress upon the various changes to the Club Licensing Regulations for the 2016-17 season. Honing a U-15 as well as U-18 team along with the current regime, implementing a full proof grassroots development plan are some of the underlined alterations which the clubs are meant to contrive on that particular season.

The house will resume after lunch break while a Youth League Plan for the 2015-16 season will be discussed vividly. An one and half hour long final session of the workshop will be on Marquee Player Criteria for the upcoming Hero I-League season. There will be slight modifications in the Marquee Player Criteria which will serve the purpose in a better way. An open Q&A session is scheduled so that club officials can put forward their view on this matter.

Approximately twenty five honchos from the eleven Hero I-League clubs (including Aizawl FC who got promoted by virtue of winning the Second Division League 2014-15) have committed to be present in the workshop.
