Srinagar, November 13: J&K Football Association (JKFA) has expressed its willingness to All India Football Federation (AIFF) for hosting prestigious Santosh Trophy and Under-19 national events.
Recently AIFF had shot a general letter to all its State and Union Territory units across the country, inviting proposals for hosting Santosh Trophy football tournament and other National level events.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, organization of football matches in the country were also hit like other activities of life. All the plans and proposals previously drafted had to be revised. It is in that regard AIFF geared to make up for the lost time and asked its units to come up with the proposals.
JKFA also received the letter and expressed its willingness to host North Zone leg of the Santosh Trophy and also full Under-19 national football tournament.
“We have sent our reply to AIFF. We have asked for giving us hosting rights of North Zone Santosh Trophy and also entire Under-19 tournament. Same kind of proposals would be sent by other units and only after reviewing, AIFF will make a final call,” said JKFA official.
