IPFCA to help team owners

Concerned over the shutting of two long-running football clubs -- Mahindra United and JCT -- over the last couple of years and the lack of a proper revenue model, twelve I-League club owners met here on Saturday to float the idea of the Indian Professional Football Clubs Association.

IPFCA would be formed under the Society Registration Act 1860, and would be funded by member clubs.

Among its main objectives are safeguarding common interests of the clubs, popularising the I-League and helping to make it sustainable and profitable, club owners said. “We have been promised that a proper revenue model and a road map would be given to us on April 30 by the AIFF and IMG-Reliance when we met on February 21,” Nandan Piramal, who owns Pune FC said.
