The All India Football Federation's Executive Committee will recommend the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to positively view the request of the Indian Super League (ISL) to award the AFC Champions League qualifier spot to its winners.

The Executive Committee of the apex governing body said that it arrived at this decision after taking into consideration the Master Rights Agreement (MRA) signed by AIFF and its commercial partner Football Sports Development Ltd (FSDL). The AIFF statement also highlighted the fact that in the last five years, the entire Indian national squad are mostly playing in the ISL, the TV viewership and in stadia audience have grown more substantially vis a vis the I-League.
