It all started in a casual practice session , Yogesh sir came to us asked “why don’t you guys start a football league”..
This question has ignited IFL ( Ifim football league ). All the brains of ifim football freak’s started to wonder how to make it materialistic . All of a sudden we had an organisation team which was lead by Mr Preaneet Kotla and Mr Serbahashi Ghosh . Idea’s were pouring in relating to execution of this league.
Mr Ghosh thought of a an auction with points and Mr Praneet prepared schedule and format.
With in no time we had 4 teams :
1) Black Panthers(Utham(c),Kaushik,Suresh,Pandey,Ashok)
2)Shikari Palya Rangers(Sonu(c), Deepthi,Krishnendu,satish,prasad)
3)Red Wings(Shiva(c),nikhil,Srath,Pandu and Norbu)
4)Pig Skin Devils(Sandeep(c),Santosh,Sourin,Vijun,Bopanna)
6)Black Assasins(Ravi(c),Yogesh,Abhijeet,Satinder and Mohit)
Auction took place in the presence of Mr Gujan Sharma and all the captains have bid for players and by the end of auction each team had 5 players. Underdogs and Pig skin warriors have looked favourites and thanks to smart bidding by Mr Sandeep and Mr Serbhashish.
The tournamnet started on 5th and the first match was between Red Wings and underdogs and a surprise was pulled in the very beginning as Red Wings won its match 1-0 and the rest of tournament carried on with surprises.
