Barely hours before the tournament’s scheduled kick-off, the Super Cup was shrouded in uncertainty with Minerva Punjab FC giving the customary pre-match conference and meeting a miss, prompting the All India Football Federation to label it as “blatant disregard”.

A cloud of uncertainty hung over the fate of the tournament after eight I-League clubs on Tuesday pulled out citing unfair treatment by the AIFF.

“While representatives from three clubs – FC Pune City, Kerala Blasters FC and Indian Arrows – were present on both occasions, Minerva Punjab FC did not attend either despite being present in Bhubaneswar,” the AIFF said in a statement.
