New Delhi: After Mahindra and Mahindra, now JCT have decided to wind up its Phagwara-based popular club for, what it says, the lack of mileage from the I-League. Their decision came as a rude shock for the All India Football Federation (AIFF).
Like Mahindra and Mahindra, JCT are former national league champions, but they have been struggling financially for the past few seasons. As speculated, they have decided to disband the team after their relegation from the premier division of the I-League this season.
AIFF secretary general Kushal Das said that it was unfortunate that JCT's decision came at a time when things were looking bright for Indian football.
