AIFF finds Minerva Punjab owner 'guilty' of racial abuse

Kolkata -- I-League champions Minerva Punjab FC's owner Ranjit Bajaj has been banned for one year from all football activities and also fined Rs 10 lakh by the AIFF after the federation found him 'guilty' of making racist remarks against a referee.

The AIFF's Disclipinary Committee said this was the fourth offence committed by Bajaj within a span of year.

The latest incident happened during Minerva's Under-18 Youth League play-off match against Aizawl FC that ended in a 1-1 draw at JLN Stadium in...

On Wednesday, April 5, an AFC Cup match will be held at the IGA Stadium in Guwahati, Assam. The home club is not Assamese but Aizawl FC. Other than geography, there is little that is out of the ordinary in Aizawl FC travelling nearly 500km out of Aizawl to Guwahati for a 'home' game. AFC criteria require matches be played on natural turf and maintaining a top-quality grass pitch in Mizoram is close to impossible.

The footballing incongruity lies close inside that new 'home': Assam, the region's...

Without context, the Super Cup sticks out like a sore thumb

 

The Super Cup, which starts on Saturday evening with the first of the round of 16 matches between newly crowned Indian Super League (ISL) champions Chennaiyin FC and former I-League champions Aizawl FC, in Bhubaneswar, could have been a tournament for the ages, with better context and a more viable scheduling of fixtures.

Instead, 16 teams from the two leagues, held concurrently for the first time in 2017-18 will be heading to Odisha perhaps wondering why they are going to play through the...

East Bengal have roped in Subhas Bhowmick in their support staff ahead of the Super Cup, and the club have said that he will work in combination with coach Khalid Jamil.

"Subhas is coming. It [the position] is not really one of a technical director, but he and Khalid will work together on the team. They will consult each other for games and hopefully develop a good working relationship. That's the idea," a senior club official told ESPN. Bhowmick has had three previous stints with East Bengal as...

Minerva Punjab express displeasure over Super Cup draw

I-League champions Minerva and runners-up NEROCA have been drawn to face ISL teams in the round of 16 itself.

Less than a week after completing an improbable I-League win, Minerva Punjab have expressed their displeasure over both the "discrimination" in the draw for the upcoming Super Cup, as well as the perceived insufficient financial support from the All India Football Federation (AIFF) for the knockout tournament that starts with the qualifiers in Bhubaneswar on March 15.

"Even if we play one small local tournament, the organisers put you up in one place at least. Here we have come to know that there...
