Sudeva Football Club will become the first ever club from the capital to play in the I-League as the All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Wednesday approved the city side’s participation in the second-tier domestic competition from the upcoming season.

The AIFF also announced Visakhapatnam side Sreenidhi Football Club’s entry into the I-League from 2021-2022 season.

Shillong’s Ryntih Sports Club, though, missed out after the members of AIFF’s bid committee and representatives of PwC met over a video conference to discuss the issue.

Based on the corporate entry rule, Sudeva FC — earlier known as Moonlight FC — will be immune from relegation for the upcoming season.
