The team touched down at the Airport at around 4.45 pm in a Indigo flight and were warmly welcomed by AMFA officials and family members along with small numbers of fans, who were unaware of their arrival.

Chief Minister N Biren Singh had assured Rs 5 lakh each to the players and support staff of the team, on their epoch making victory.
