In a major development, during meeting between FIFA-AFC and stakeholders of Indian football, a promotion, and relegation system has been devised for the upcoming season of ISL and I-League. This will come as a huge boost to I-League clubs, who will get a chance to play against top clubs in India.

Meanwhile, it looks like a done deal, but the confirmation is yet to come from the AIFF. While the system was in talks for a few years now, it has only been finalized now, which could prove to be a blessing for Indian football.
