Mr Satyam Roy Chowdhury Chancellor SNU and MR A Dutta Secretary IFA after signing of agreement

Indian Football Association (IFA), which is one of the oldest association of football in the world, runs the football league of Kolkata since 1893. Kolkata league actually started even before the start of Modern Olympics. For decades different personlities ran this organisation very efficiently. Recently IFA planned to tie up with different corporate sectors as now the running cost of the tournament is going to touch the sky and without the help of  corporate sector it is not possible to run a big event. Even the clubs registered under IFA are also getting associated with different corporate sectors. Like last year IFA, under the leadership of the newly elected Secretary Mr. A. Dutta, Mr Ajit Banerjee President and Mr Subrata Dutta Chairman came up with an agreement with Sister Nivedita University (SNU) to run the Calcutta Football League (CFL) under their sponsership. SNU will give prize for the best player of each match, best emerging player etc. SNU, who have the previous experience of supporting The Aryans Club for 10 years will also support IFA in running District league, Junior and Sub Junior league.
