The two-week Indian Women's League (IWL) will be a beginning of a new era in country's women's football, Patel said.

"Simply IWL doesn't have any mention of football. It is named AIFF Indian Women's League, which refers to football.

"We may later rename the league as Football India IWL but for that we have to rename AIFF as Football India.

"All though a decision is yet to be taken, but it may be announced soon," Patel said on the sidelines of the launch of inaugural Indian Women's League.
