    Football league bids kick off with a roar


    Indian Super League, IMG Reliance and STAR India’s coming football tournament, received an enthusiastic response in the bid process for franchises that started earlier this week.

    Sources at the league’s promoters said owners of I-League clubs, as well as celebrities from the sports and film sectors, had come forward to buy invitation-to-bid (ITB) documents.

    Apart from meeting the usual financial criteria, bidders for Indian Super League franchises will have to ensure they have grass-roots development plans for football in their home cities, according to the ITBs for franchises.

    An IMG Reliance source says, “In the past, it has been seen clubs spend huge amounts of money annually on player salaries but a very little part of it is spent on developing the sport. Therefore, one of the main eligibility norms in the ITB is development of football in the city the club represents.”

    Teams

    It is known Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will bid for a team from Kolkata. Sources say Khan might face tough competition from former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly. Others in the fray include model, actor and producer John Abraham, Ronnie Screwvala, Rhiti Sports, Mahindra & Mahindra and JSW Sports.

    The tender document costs Rs 5 lakh and the base price has been fixed at Rs 120 crore over a term of 10 years. Bids have been sought from nine regions — Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Guwahati, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune — of which the top eight will be selected. Reportedly, Hyderabad was also considered but dropped due to political instability in the region.

    Each team has to have at least 22 players — eight international players and 14 domestic ones (from the national team, clubs and the under-23 and -19 groups). Of the eight international players in a team, one will be a marque player.

    IMG is in talks to rope in various international football stars. Dwight Yorke, Fredrik Ljungberg, Robert Pines, Louis Saha and Hernán Crespo have already confirmed their participation.

    “The marque players will be recently retired international ones who have represented their countries in the World Cup and played in major international football leagues,” says a source at IMG Reliance.

    It is expected the auction of players will be conducted in May.

    Under the agreement between IMG Reliance and STAR India, the TV network (a 30 per cent partner in the league), will be responsible for marketing. It holds the exclusive media rights to the league and will be responsible for roping in on-ground, title and broadcast sponsors.

    IPL-type Football League: Organisers Receive 'Unprecedented' 30 Bids




    Anticipation around the Indian Super League football seems to be building with the organisers receiving positive response from about 30 interested parties, even as the deadline for submitting the bid documents has been extended by two days to March 26 and 27.

    The original dates for submission of bid documents were March 24 (tomorrow) and Tuesday.

    "Between 3rd to 21st March 2014, League organisers have recorded about 30 'Invitation to Bid' (ITB) document purchase. In terms of the numbers, this is by far the highest level of interest that any similar franchise-based sports property has garnered in India," tournament organisers IMG-Reliance said in a statement.

    Some of the big names from the country's corporate world, Bollywood biggies and present sports team owners have come forward with a wish to be part of the event that promises big-ticket action.

    The league was to begin in January but had to be postponed owing to scheduling problem and lack of a window.

    Promising to revolutionise the sport in the country, the league has the backing of All India Football Federation, and is likely to see big names such as former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke, former Argentina striker Hernan Crespo and former England forward Michael Owen.

    The nine cities in the reckoning are Bangalore, Chennai, Dehli, Goa, Guwahati, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune. Eight cities will be shortlisted.

    According to sources, each team will have to present a robust business plan that includes developing grassroots talent in their city and having an academy by the next five years. The ISL also aims to reach to one million school kids in the country.

    "The mandate for winning a city team in the Indian Super League had a novelty factor wherein it's not only based on the highest financial bid, but also on the bidders' proposal of a sound plan for developing football in the catchment area they wish to bid.

    "This plan would also form part of the agreement that each franchise would sign with the League, and would be expected to adhere to it."

    "The bid document requires an extensive groundwork which needs to be undertaken before the submission. It involves a robust business proposal and a committed five-year grassroot/ community development plan starting with 1 million in-school kids engagement plan, age group specific training, youth team and leading upto having a full-time football academy," the statement said further.

    It was also said that each of the franchise owners will have to spend Rs 2 crore on grassroot development every year.

    The delay in submitting bids was due to the "demanding documentation".

    The winning bids announcement will take place in the second week of April. Ernst & Young, the advisory firm, has been entrusted the responsibility of evaluating the bid documents, following which the winning participants will be announced by first week of April.

    have bid for the Kolkata franchise of the
    upcoming Indian Super League (ISL) along with
    former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly,
    according to a report in The Times of India.
    It is also learnt that Atletico Madrid picked up
    the bid document separately as did Ganguly.
    However, after studying the bid and showing
    interest in the league, they approached the
    former cricketer to form a consortium to which
    the latter agreed.
    A source in the know of developments told TOI
    that both the prospective bidders - Atletico and
    Ganguly - were aware of what each party was
    capable of bringing to the table and agreed to
    get together.
    In another major development surrounding the
    Indian Super League, actor John Abraham and I-
    League football club Shillong Lajong have bid
    together for the city of Guwahati in Assam.
    Meanwhile, batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is
    learnt to have shown interest in the Kochi
    franchise and is involved with Prasad Potluri-
    owned PVP Ventures to bid for the Kerala city.
    Tendulkar's interest in Kochi, however, could not
    be confirmed.
    Friday was the last day for all those who had
    picked up the ISL tender documents to buy a
    franchise to submit their respective bids.
