BEML-KGF Academy will become the second Karnataka team after South United FC to be handed a spot in the 2nd Division League 2012-13, it was announced here on Friday.

“The mistake was that they played as KGF Academy last year, and then changed their name to BEML-KGF,” the KSFA President A.R. Khaleel explained. “That was not permitted.”

Khaleel revealed that the club had submitted an undertaking to the AIFF on Tuesday, after the conclusion of the local Super Division season, to revert to the old name.

“The other issues are all minor ones and the club is assured of a berth in the 2nd Division. They have sought one week’s time to sort everything out.” — Sports Reporter
