6d3f379c-b9a7-4f96-a6cd-31202dd47b9bKolkata: Defending Champions Aizawl FC claimed Rs.57 lakh rupees from All India Football Federation (AIFF) as their outstanding dues since 2015-16 season. Yesterday Dipanda Dicka last year golden ball winner also said that he was yet to get the prize money.

Aizawl FC found guilty and fined Rs. 3 lakh of crowd violence in their match against Mohun Bagan by AIFF disciplinary committee. Club president Robert Royte attended the meeting today in Kolkata.

"The AIFF owes us Rs 57 lakh that includes runners-up prize money of the 2015-16 Federation Cup, some Man of the Matches awards and travelling allowances," Royte told a news conference.

"As an owner and president of the club, I demand that the AIFF should also clear the pending dues. Then we will see how to pay the fine.

"Regarding the quantum and amount of the fine, I've to discuss with my colleagues whether we will go for an appeal or not. We have to follow the rules."

An AIFF official said all dues will be cleared by the end of the ongoing fiscal.

Royte, however, said they would give an undertaking to the AIFF that the club will be responsible for the safety, security and peace at the stadium so that there is no closed- door match in Aizawl.

"That will be done. I'm sure that improvement will be there from the government and club's side. It's a big lesson for the fans of Aizawl.

"Let us hope the AIFF will agree for the new arrangement. Safety will be ensured for the visiting teams and fans and even for the home fans," he said.

Asked if they would pay the fine, he said: "Giving of penalty is another issue. We will think whether to appeal or not. I will have to discuss with my colleagues."
