FPAI urges AIFF and FSDL to include East Bengal in the ISL!
East Bengal FC management has been vocal about their interests of participating in the Indian Super League from this season however due to the COVID-19 situation, the club is yet to finalize their investors and the time is surely running out for the club to make an entry into the ISL this season.
To help the club, the Football players association has formally mailed the AIFF and FSDL, requesting them to include East Bengal FC in the ISL without any hesitation and delay, keeping in mind of the glorious history and reputation of the club in Indian football.
The mail goes as follow:
