The Indian football team’s tour of England, where it was scheduled to play three international friendlies against Pakistan and Bangladesh, has been cancelled.
English Premier League club Fulham FC, whose Craven Cottage ground was hired to organise the matches, issued a statement informing about the cancellation.
“The club would like to inform supporters that the international friendly matches scheduled to be played at Craven Cottage in June between India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have been cancelled,” the club said in a statement.
“Full refunds for tickets already purchased will be given,” it added.
As per the original schedule, India was to play Bangladesh on June 1, followed by a match against Pakistan on June 4.
Pakistan was supposed to play Bangladesh on June 8.
Postponed, says promoter
However, Kolkata-based Celebrity Management Group (CMG), promoter of the England tour, claimed that the matches have only been postponed due to reasons beyond its control.
