Newsclick Team |
Newsclick's 420 Grams team debates the benefits and the problems of All India Football Federation (AIFF) running two simultaneous "top flight" leagues -- the I-League and the Indian Super League (ISL)

On the pitch at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi, the team debates the needs, the benefits and the problems of running two simultaneous "top flight" leagues in India. Outnumbered, but not out fought, Arjun Pandit discusses the benefits and the improved quality the Indian Super League (ISL) has brought to  football in the country. Siddhanth Aney and Leslie Xavier find faults in the ISL's top down pyramid structure, and the promotional push it rides on to undermine the older I-League. Everyone finds some common ground, in that the more the football, the better it will get. Join in the discussion below and let us know what you think is the way forward for Indian football. I-League, ISL, or Aye Aye Aye, Goodbye.
