Kolkata: The All India Football Federation on Tuesday said it was not consulted for the proposed marquee match between the world's most popular club Manchester United and Serie A champions Juventus, which is reportedly being organised in the city on August 1.
AIFF Vice-President, Subrata Dutta, said they had seen the reports where West Bengal Sports Minister Madan Mitra confirmed of the match being held at the 120,000 capacity Yuba Bharati Krirangan.
"But we are not yet consulted in this matter. Without the AIFF and sports ministry's consent, one cannot organise such a match. It is required to take permission at least two and half month's in advance," Dutta told PTI.
