A UAE-based Indian company is among six firms to submit a bid to buy two new clubs in India’s top football league – the I-League – in an attempt to give the sport in India a jump-start.
All India Football Federation (AIFF) organisers were in Dubai last month to meet expatriate Indians in an attempt to get them to fund a cash injection into Indian football.
“We had a good meeting with investors in Dubai,” said Kushal Das, general secretary of the AIFF. “Six corporates including a UAE company have bought the bid documents. The Dodsal Group is the only UAE company to have bought the bid.” The Dubai-based Dodsal Group confirmed it made a bid, but did not offer details.
