Bagan, EB all for revamped ISL
Arch-rivals Mohun Bagan and East Bengal came on board to play for the revamped Indian Super League and requested AIFF to wave off the franchisee fee keeping their heritage in mind. All India Football Federation (AIFF) and IMG-Reliance have been in talks to merge I-League with the Indian Super League to make it the top-most league in the country. Mohun Bagan and East Bengal will now put forward a memorandum and meet the AIFF president and secretary in the first week of May seeking their support. "Both the clubs have come together on this issue and are willing to play only in the top most official league of the country, considering their contribution to Indian football," a senior AIFF official said.
