As far as Indian football is concerned, no competition has been canceled since the I-League qualifiers started from October last year. Kushal Das told PTI-language, “The world football body FIFA and the Asian body AFC have also praised. The bio bubble protocol of Indian football is a subject of study not only for sports management institutions but also for international federations across the world. ”
Despite the pandemic, the reason for the successful conduct of the competition was the AIFF’s stringent measures, including the complete disregard for the VIP culture in the stadiums. Once inside the bio bubble, no one was allowed to come out of it.
Kushal Das said, “Our biggest success in our bio bubble protocol was that it was not violated. We did not support the VIP culture and any player or staff member who entered the bio bubble once was not allowed to come out during the entire tournament. Nobody got such permission.” He said, “We got tests done every three-four days and if someone tested positive, he was kept in isolation for 17 days and three RT PCR tests came negative. But only he was allowed to come out.
Das said, “It was tough but the sacrifice made by the AIFF staff during the entire bio bubble was commendable. We even had X-ray machines, therapists, physios, masseurs, drivers in the Bio Bubble to create a completely sustainable biosafe environment.
