Indian Football : Delhi to host a few I-League matches


According to the latest I-League schedule released by AIFF, 5 of the ONGC matches will be hosted in Delhi.

This comes as a positive move for Indian football as I-League has been restricted only to Kolkata, Goa, Shillong, Pune, Gangtok and Mumbai, with no representation in Southern or Northern India. ONGC’s matches in Delhi might help in generating interest in Delhites who have shown great passion during India’s matches in Delhi. Now it remains to be seen whether the involvement of a PSU based club like ONGC can have any impact on I-League viewership in Delhi.

The following matches will held in Delhi as per the latest AIFF schedule –

26th October, 2012 – ONGC vs Prayag United

4th November, 2012 – ONGC vs Air India

9th November, 2012 – ONGC vs Mohun Bagan

16th November, 2012 – ONGC vs Dempo

8th December, 2012 – ONGC vs Sporting Club de Goa
