Minerva to get re-match against Real Kashmir

Minerva Punjab FC, which pulled out of its I-League clash against Real Kashmir in Srinagar on Feb. 18, citing security concerns, will get a re-match against the debutant, the AIFF has decided.

“The AIFF Emergency Committee on Monday decided that there will be a re-match of Real Kashmir and Minerva Punjab but the date and venue is yet to be decided,” I-League CEO Sunando Dhar said.

“We have communicated this to Real Kashmir (since they are the host team) and we will take a decision (on the venue and date) after they give a reply. The plan is to have the match before the Super Cup preliminary round starts (on March 15).”

Real Kashmir had turned up for the game last month and they be awarded the three points after Minerva’s no-show.
