During the meeting, Royte told the minister that whereas Aizawl FC is all set to play Asia level league in the coming season, the absence of a standard football stadium in the state for hosting international matches has become the concern of the people of Mizoram.

The minister told Royte that in recognition of Aizawl FC's success, he would soon give funds to the state government of Mizoram to construct a stadium.

On the issue of merger of I-League and ISL, Goel advised Royte to sit together with other I-League clubs and come to him with a concrete proposal.
