The Pros and Cons about the merger of the I League and ISL

The good and bad about the merger of the I League and ISL

The elusive merger between the I League and the ISL would see the start of the day from the 2018-2019 seasons. On the other hand, as per inputs from the president of the All India Football Federation, a unified league is not too far away. However, the process of this merger is still underway, and no one can adequately comment on this process. On the other hand, as per the views of the authorities from the Indian Soccer, it would take place by the next year. Also, it can be said that the Indian authorities are working towards a process for the Indian football to achieve success. However, to do so, they need permission from the FIFA and the AFC. These two football bodies have given the nod to go ahead with the establishment of this merger.

The reason behind this merger

Various national level teams exist in India which can represent India at the international level. However, these organizations do not have the permission to play in the ISL. This has aggravated many fans of these clubs. In this context, it is also interesting to note that many soccer teams do not have the required financial strength to compete in all the major tournaments. The merger of the ISL and the I-League went down well with the team managers of East Bengal and Mohun Bagan. On the other hand, the merger would be received well with all the existing teams in the Indian football scenario. I league

The good and bad about this merger

It is interesting to note that the I-League sides have a lot to win if there is merger within the two clubs. On the other hand, the teams would also learn a lot if there is a merger as there would be the exchange of talent. In other words, it is excellent for the Indian football fan. On the other side, the Indian players would have the exciting prospect to play beside the likes of notable foreign players. The I-league teams have a lot of contribution to the cause of the Indian football. This is the reason that this merger would be beneficial to the cause of the Indian Football. The exchange of talent is equally vital for the growth of soccer in India, and this is the reason that a merger is necessary.

On the contrary, as every coin has two sides, there are disadvantages about this merger too. For instance, the teams that have a low budget cannot gain advantage from the process of incorporation of the two tournaments. The AFC or the Asian Football Confederation would hold more meetings with the potential stakeholders in the future along with their Indian counterparts. This meeting would finalize the settlement between the players. If a team is low in financial resources, then they cannot participate in a helpful manner. The proposed merger would be beneficial for all the teams. The teams would have to follow the AFC regulations in order to play in a merger tournament.
