Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in South Goa is a property of SAG.

Prabhudesai said the fees that due to be paid is of the matches played during current ISL season.

"The fees of the past ISL season has been cleared," he said.

"The fees for usage of the stadium has to be cleared on time without any delay," said the Executive Director.

In recent past, South District Police had raised the bill of Rs 3.80 crore which was due to be paid by FC Goa.

Goa police had even refused to provide security for the first ISL match held on 8 October.

The security was provided after the intervention of Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar.

Despite repeated attempts, FC Goa could not be reached for comments.
