India’s homegrown soccer tournament kicks off today- a dream come true for the indigenous Indian Super League(ISL). Building itself from strength to strength, the League has completed two seasons albeit without fans for audience unlike the open series to begin from today.
Last seasons runners-up Kerala Blasters will host East Bengal FC at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi. The organisers have kept the things simple for fans in terms of easy access to live games and more weekend-centric games after 3 weeks into the tournament.
This season will feature 117 high-octane football matches with the season for the first time in its history, running into five months apart from playoffs, semi-finals and final. All contesting clubs will play 20 league games(100 home games and 10 away).
