ISL – Kerala Blasters likely to appeal against AIFF’s disciplinary action

From April 8th, the Blasters will play in the Super Cup against ISL and I-League teams.

AIFF’s Disciplinary Committee fined Kerala Blasters Rs 4 crore for walking off the pitch and forfeiting their ISL playoff match against Bengaluru FC on March 3 after they walked off the pitch.

The AIFF Disciplinary Committee – chaired by Vaibhav Gaggar, directed the Blasters to issue a public apology for abandoning the match, failing which the total fine would be increased to Rs 6 crore. The club has yet to announce its official response to the national body’s decision. However, Sportstar claims Blasters will appeal to the national body’s conclusion.
