NEROCA FC has pulled out of the ongoing Super Cup in Bhubaneswar citing its commitment to the alliance formed with the I-League sides, protesting the apparent poor treatment meted against them by the All India Football Federation (AIFF).

The Renedy Singh-coached side was scheduled to take on Indian Super League side NorthEast United on April 3 in a round-of-16 clash.

In a statement released on Sunday, the club said, "We won't participate in Hero Super Cup 2019 main round which has begun in Bhubaneswar. We decided not to break the I-League clubs alliance against participating in the Super Cup to fight for the survival of I-League."

East Bengal and Mohun Bagan have pulled out, too, while Chennai City FC and Real Kashmir FC are set to play their main round matches.
