I-league is here…

Posted in Football, India, soccer, sports by clash on September 26, 2008

No fanfare.. no stars… hush… hush in the last page of news papers. The National Football league, in its new avatar; I -league is here. This is the second edition of an obscure football league in India where obscure foreign players ply their trade. Brazilians, Africans and such goes the ethnic backgrounds of these players.

Formidable teams test their chances in this league, the kolkotan giants; East Bengal and Mohun Bagan. The Mumbai outfits Mumbai FC and Mahindra United, the Goan contingent that include Dempo, Churchill Brothers and sorts and the sole representation from the North JCT Mills. A SWOT analysis done here weigh up all the teams in this edition of i-league.

With matches conducted over the weekends, I-league expect to increase its viewer ship. Last time for many matches, tickets were not issued;such was the turn out, hardly hundreds. With Barclays premier league thronging itself forcefully in to our drawing room, it is very difficult to predict the success of I-league on weekends. It doesn’t mean that it was any good while it happened during the week days. The league will definitely struggle to garner any viewer ship.

Then again, it has been a wonderful year so far for Indian Football. The AFC Challenge Cup victory against a formidable Tajikistan has been a real morale booster for everyone who follows Indian football and then Dempo’s forced themselves in to the semi-finals of the AFC Cup . Tremendous so far with other notable achievements being the Indian U-16 team’s, who held Manchester United for a draw in the UK tour. May be this is the i-league to look out for, with Dempo being my favorites to win it.
