“It has been a hectic time for Indian football season this time. We have a tight schedule within a short period of time that was not easy to manage.”

The President of AIFF highlighted the bustling activity on the domestic scene as well. Clubs are actively engaged, not just within the premier domestic league with an expanded fixture list, but also with some clubs fully dedicated to participating in Asian competitions. He added,

“We must remember that there are general elections coming, and to avoid the adverse weather conditions in certain parts of the country, we had to adjust the schedule, and shorten the domestic calendar to an extent so that these things don’t hamper the quality of the games and put unnecessary pressure on the players.”

“There were situations which were unavoidable and demanded a great balancing act. It was never easy, but at the same time, I must reach out to FSDL and the clubs, thanking them for making it possible. The Indian National Team are going to the Asian Games after a nine-year gap, and it has become possible because of the active support the Indian Football received from the Government of India, especially the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports,”

Kalyan Chaubey extended his gratitude to both the Indian government and the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports for their unwavering support of Indian football and their exceptional collaboration. The president of AIFF expressed strong belief in the Indian team’s ability to deliver a commendable performance at the Asian Games, which will contribute significantly to the advancement of Indian football.
