Sporty shown door; BAI to conduct IBL


Badminton Association of India(BAI) is set to conduct the Indian Badminton League post termination of contract with its promoters, Sporty Solutions(P) Ltd. The company accused the association of tall demands that brought about financial constrains and considered the act of termination “unlawful”. The company is looking forward to legal action.
In its defence, BAI sources claim that the termination of contract was due to the company’s  failure in honouring its commitments. They claim that Sporty has failed in producing that bank guarantee of rupees 50 crore demanded by the association. BAI had also received complaints regarding mismanagement from the IBL staff. IBL made its debut in 2013 but was not held in 2014 .
“We will conduct the IBL now. We have given them so many opportunities but they failed on several fronts. Our aim is that the game and players should be benefited. We are confident of conducting it successfully,” the source said.
