A week after Hindustan Times did a series of stories on the multiple problems surrounding the Delhi Soccer Association (DSA), including the lack of transparency, the state body on Monday announced that they will hold the general body elections on November 19.

The DSA held its managing committee meeting on Monday and, among other things, declared the date for the elections.
