I-league to start off with no telecast and title sponsor

I-League_logo.svgI-league will kick off this Saturday but there is no confirmation on the telecast and title sponsor.  Even though AIFF published an article on their website saying that fans would be able to watch the season opener between Churchill Brothers vs Salgaocar FC, broadcaster Ten Action has not so far put up the schedules on their website.

If you are to go by available reports, there will be no telecast for the 1st round of matches. Supposedly the broadcaster has not been able to recce of the stadiums so far and they are going to do it at the earliest.

I-league will also be without a title sponsor this season as well. IMG-Reliance, the marketing partners of AIFF have been striving to rope-in  a sponsor but so far that efforts have not been fruitful.
