Gokulam Kerala FC to represent India in AFC Women’s Club Championship 2020-21

New Delhi, Jul 15 (UNI) India’s supreme football governing body AIFF on Thursday announced that it has nominated Gokulam Kerala FC (GKFC), the champion of the 4th edition of the Hero Indian Women’s League, to represent the country in the AFC Women’s Club Championship 2020-21 – Pilot tournament.

All India Football Federation’s General Secretary Kushal Das, in a letter to AFC General Secretary Dato Windsor John also wrote, “We would like to inform you that after discussing with the local organising committee (Odisha Sports), AIFF has decided to postpone the 5th edition of the Hero Indian Women’s League (HIWL) for a few months keeping in mind the monsoon, and an expected third wave of infections.”

The 5th edition was originally supposed to be held in Bhubaneswar by Odisha Sports in close coordination with AIFF.

But it had to be postponed owing to the second wave of the pandemic which hit hard. Keeping options open, the League Committee had taken a decision to conduct it later in a proposed new window subject to health parameters.
