GUWAHATI, June 14 � An official of IMG Reliance, who has bought the marketing rights of All India Football Federation (AIFF), today visited the Indira Gandhi Athletics Stadium at Sarusajai here.
Arun Karthik, Manager Sports of the organisation, along with Assam Football Association officials visited the stadium to take stock of the infrastructure facilities available in that stadium to host international and other important matches organised by AIFF.
Karthik later expressed his satisfaction over the facilities in the stadium and hoped some of the AIFF matches will be hosted here. The organisation had purchased the marketing rights from AIFF with Rs 700 crore for 15 years. But in last couple of years they hardly got down to business as far telecasting and marketing of the AIFF�s big domestic tournaments.
Karthik said their organisation is in search of venues all over the country where big matches could be staged. As the Sarusajai stadium can fulfil all the required guidelines for holding big matches, they may definitely consider this venue for allotting important matches.
