Five entities had placed their respective bids for corporate entries into the Hero I-League – Nimida United Sports Development Pvt Ltd (FCBU), YMS Finance Pvt Ltd (Inter Kashi), Namdhari Seeds Pvt Ltd (Bhaini Sahib Village, Punjab), , Concatenate Advest Advisory Pvt Ltd (Delhi), and Bunkerhill Pvt Ltd (Ambala, Haryana). The Executive Committee, in its first order of the day, decided to accommodate all five bidders into the Hero I-League, with the vision of expanding the competition to a stronger league.
The Committee, in line with AIFF’s long-term plan, Vision 2047, felt it would be prudent to revive a legacy competition like the Federation Cup. To that extent, it decided that the Federation Cup will be the premier cup competition in India from the 2023-24 season onwards.
