Posted On   Jul 09 2013




Franchise-based football tournament organised by the AIFF and its commercial partner IMG-Reliance could see retired stars such as David Beckham and Raul Gonzalez in action

There is a possibility that the franchise-based football tournament, to be jointly organised by the AIFF and its commercial partner IMG-Reliance for early next year, could see retired stars such as David Beckham.

According to a British website, Sports Management Agency IMG is trying to recruit recently retired stars like Beckham, his former England teammate Michael Owen and former Spain captain Raul Gonzalez to help boost the profile of the venture.

However, no AIFF official was willing to confirm the development when asked about it.

"I have only heard about it, so I cannot confirm you anything as of now," a top All India Football Federation official said.

Having being granted a window from January 15 to March 15 next year, the IPL-style football tournament will feature eight franchises with a squad of 25 players each to play a series of matches.

The franchise-based league will feature many international players. . Some of the country`s top players, including retired stars, are also expected to take part in the tournament.

The details of the league are likely to be finalised by August.
