New Delhi, 8 July: After AIFF’s development side Arrows, another major I-League outfit, United Sports Club’s future has been thrown into uncertainty thanks to absence of sponsors.
The Kolkata-based club’s problems started after it lost its financially-hit sponsors Prayag as a fallout of the chit-fund scam in Bengal.
“We are going through problems as far as sponsors are concerned. Prayag is no more our sponsors and we have struggling ever since,” team director Nabab Bhattacharya told PTI from Kolkata. Even as the fear of the club closing down looms, Bhattacharya said they will try their level best to rope in a sponsor before the seventh edition of the I-League kicks off later this year.
“There is no question of closing down. We are confident of getting a sponsor before the league,” Bhattacharya said. pti
