In the year 2017, the Indian Football Federation (IFF) was formed in an attempt to create a league-based version of the world’s oldest game, Football.
The league has played for the past 15 years, but its first foray into the international game was in the year 2000, when it hosted the inaugural edition of the AFC Cup, a competition between England and India.
The game has since become one of the biggest events in India and is considered a major cultural touchstone of the country.
In this exclusive interview with TalkSport, the IFF’s president Sunil Dixit talks about what has made the game of football so special, the importance of the World Cup and how the game has been growing globally in recent years.
What are your ambitions with this league?
The IFF is an organisation of players, coaches and supporters, and the first step towards making the game more accessible to everyone, irrespective of income level, status or geographic location.
The club is also aiming at being an important part of the local community.
It is our job to support the local players and promote the game in a way that has relevance for the city of Mumbai.
What does the club look for in a coach?
