Kolkata, April 14 (IANS) The I-League Committee will decide on the fate of the remaining 28 matches in a video call meeting at the end of the week, a top league official said.
The COVID-19 pandemic had forced the league to suspend its matches with the country initially observing a 21-day lockdown.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced an extension of the current nationwide lockdown till May 3, claiming social distancing is the only way to pass the “agni pariksha”.
Mohun Bagan have won the title with four rounds to spare and will be officially crowned the I-League champions.
“No decision has been made so far on cancelling the league altogether. The League Committee will decide that in a video conference meeting,” a top official told IANS on Tuesday.
“Let’s see the meeting could be on Friday or over the weekend or maybe on Monday,” the official added.
Besides the I-League, the second division I-League is also not finished and the AIFF could offer a solution of playing a qualifier before the start of the next season.
In the I-League, the second and third place clubs need to be determined as well as the team to be relegated to second division.
