Eyes on big clubs as Fed Cup begins today
All eyes would be on the big spending clubs as the football season gets underway with the 34th edition of the Federation Cup on Wednesday.

I-League champions Dempo take on AIFF developmental side Pailan Arrows in the inaugural match at JRD Tata Complex here, while in another simultaneous match at 3pm, Mumbai FC face Shillong Lajong at Keenan Stadium, the second venue in the city.

Twelve teams divided into four groups, including defending champions Salgaocar, will vie for top honours in the premier league-cum-knockout club tournament which is being held in Jamshedpur and Siliguri. Group A and D matches will be held in Jamshedpur while Group B and C games will be played in Siliguri.

A lot will be at stake for the Big Three of Kolkata -- record 18 time champions Mohun Bagan, seven-time winners East Bengal and United SC while Goan sides Dempo and Churchill are also strong contenders.
