New Delhi, May 16 : The All India Football Federation (AIFF) XI's first match of the U-16 Asia Champions Trophy 2014 against Frenz United, Malaysia, A, in Kuala Lumpur has been postponed by a day.
The match was slated for Saturday but will now be held 8.30 pm Sunday.
"Complications in visa regulations and flight tickets prompted the postponement of the match," the organisers said.
The AIFF XI boys left Kolkata Friday morning and would be arriving in Kuala Lumpur Saturday after spending the night in Bangkok.
"It's an U-16 Tournament and we won't make any compromise on the rest of the players. As the AIFF XI boys arrive in Kuala Lumpur around 1 pm on Saturday, it's important that we allow enough time to rest and recover from their hectic journey for them to get ready for the match," the organisers further said.
