Mizoram XI v FPAI XI

The proceeds from the exhibition match to be organised by the Football Players Association of India (FPAI) and the Mizoram Football Association (MFA) will be donated to aid the victims of the flash flood and landslides in Mizoram.

Bhaichung Bhutia, the first ever FPAI president said, “We are aware of the recent tragedies in Mizoram. The FPAI might not have ample funds but we want to help in any way we can. We want to hand all the proceeds from this event to the state government, and we may have the FPAI Awards on the field if we have to.”

“Although this event is jointly organised by the FPAI and the MFA, this match is solely for the FPAI. They have made the decision to donate all the proceeds to the victims of recent tragedies in Mizoram. The MFA wholeheartedly supports this decision and is very pleased that the best players in the country will visit our state and play against the best players of our state.” said MFA Honorary Secretary Lalghinglova Hmar.

The FPAI and Mizoram XI match will take place on on July 1, 2:30 PM at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium. Tickets will be priced at Rs. 100/- and Rs. 200/-

The MFA has also made the final selection for players who will represent the Mizoram XI. 6 players from the Mizoram team for Santosh Trophy 2017 will join up with players in the I-League and Indian Super League.
However, 8 Mizo talents recently called up for the Indian Under 23 team will not be able to take part in this exhibition.
