New Delhi, Dec 8 (PTI) National team players, both men and women, will soon get match fees in a path-breaking initiative if All India Football Federation (AIFF) is able to increase its financial resources, a top official said on Thursday.

A slew of initiatives are set to be announced later this month as part of roadmap for Indian football development after the new executive council under Kalyan Chaubey took charge of the AIFF in September for a four-year tenure.

AIFF Secretary General Shaji Prabhakaran said the executive council will take a decision on introduction of match fee for the national team players. He did not give any time frame because of the budgetary constraints of the AIFF but indicated that it could be done during the current tenure.
