AIFF issue statement on Jamshedpur FC’s “16-year-old” Gourav Mukhi

All India Football Federation (AIFF)

The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has issued a statement on Jamshedpur FC’s Gourav Mukhi and the discussions surrounding his age.

AIFF Statement

Jamshedpur FC player Gourav Mukhi who had earlier given a declaration that his DOB was 04/05/1999 has now submitted documents to the CRS system referring that his DOB is 04/05/2002.

The Centralised Registration System (CRS) which registers in-detailed information of every single player for AIFF was not implemented for the National Championships and the State Associations in 2015, but later.

The discrepancy in the DOBs will be referred to the relevant committee for further appropriate action.
