Indian Super League 2016 Schedule

Indian Super League Schedule 2016

isl schedule 2014After receiving an electrifying response to the second season of the Indian Super League, the football tournament is now back again for its third year, and it is set to be even bigger and better. You can find the ISL schedule below.

The league proved to be a roaring success in its inaugural edition. Any fears that the craze around the tournament would fizzle out in the second edition proved to be baseless as fans turned out in huge numbers to cheer on their favorite sides.

The third edition of the Indian Super League will be played between October 1 and December 18 this year. The tournament retains its format with all eight sides playing home and away during the league stage before the top four sides clash in two-legged semi-finals. The final will be played on December 18. All matches will be played from 19:00 hrs IST (13:30 hrs GMT).

NorthEast United FC will take on Kerala Blasters FC in the tournament opener. Defending champions Chennaiyin FC will be up against Atletico de Kolkata in an away fixture on day 2. The champions of the inaugural edition of the tournament will be played at the Rabindra Sarobar Stadium in Kolkata this year. The stadium has a capacity of just over 26,000 spectators.

FC Pune City will host Mumbai City FC in the Maharashtra derby as the two sides kick off their respective campaigns on October 3. FC Goa will be away to NorthEast United FC on October 4. Delhi Dynamos will be in action on October 6 as they take on the defending champions in Chennai.

The ISL has proved to be a game-changer when it comes to raising the quality of Indian football as a whole. The grassroots initiatives by the different franchises have also helped talented youngsters have access to better training facilities and coaches.

The tournament has attracted some big names in the past and the trend is set to continue this season as well with a number of former A-list stars confirming their participation in the tournament. Helder Postiga, Iain Hume, Bernard Mendy, Florent Malouda, Richard Gadze, Jofre, Josu, and Nicolas Velez have all been retained.

The eight teams, who featured last season, will compete over a period of two and half months, on a home and away basis again in a format that mirrors the previous one.

These league matches will be then succeeded by two double legged semifinals in which the top four teams will battle it out to reach the final two. With 61 games to be played in total, the league matches will be played from October 1 to December 4 and the two semifinals over the two legs will take place between December 10-14.

The final will be played on Sunday, December 28 and all the matches will kick off at 7 pm India time (1330 hours GMT).

ISL 2016 promises to be an exhilarating tournament and we eagerly look forward to watching the teams in action and you can find the fixtures for the inaugural edition of the Indian Super League below. The schedule for ISL 2016 is out and can be found below.

    Dear Ladies and Ladas, All the matches will be played home and Away basis, till semis, fascinatin’, that’s y they used 1st leg and 2nd leg in the schedule instead of home and Away!!! Two matches a day would be better, may consider from next time, excited to see more

  • Rajarshi October 7, 2014, 11:29 am

    Atletico de Kolkata remember you are the team from the city which is the powerhouse of Indian football and the birthplace of two biggest football giant clubs of India, Mohun Bagan &East Bengal who brought many glories for this city. Hope you would make this city againproud like these two teams and KKR cricket team in this and every edition of ISL.

  • Rajarshi October 7, 2014, 11:13 am

    Wish ISL become the most popular sporting event in our country and contribute to Indian football by nurturing young talents. The format is really competitive and gruelling. Since I am from Kolkata, I would support Atletico De Kolkata and wish them success in this inaugural edition.

  • Owner October 7, 2014, 1:05 am
