Indian Super League which brought football as a mainstream sport in India in 2014 is all set to start it’s 6th season. India is predominated by cricket and surely professional football needed a boost and Indian super league is the best way to do it.
10 teams will fight for the title and it will be interesting to see some emerging faces in Indian football. Surely the league is long way from being a mainstream league such as English Premier League and Spanish Premier League but this will be a foundation for the progress of professional football in India.
The innaugration ceremony took place on 19th of October and Tiger Shrof and Disha Patani were the main lime light of the event. Big guns like Indian cricket team’s captain Virat Kohli, Neeta Ambani, Abhishek Bachchan own the teams playing in the league and have played a huge role in it’s promotion. We hope that the new season is more exciting and brings a new era of the game in the country.
The first match will be between Kerela Blasters and ATK, which is a Kolkata based football club. The match is all set for 7:30 PM today and can be watched on Hotstar.com
Stay tuned for more updates.
