They will look to get back to winning ways. For starters, head coach Steve Coppell and his backroom staff will be hoping to get the Blasters back in the top-four slots and the semi-finals.
The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi will host the home matches for this franchise. With a capacity of 70,000 spectators, the side will have the most number of supporters backing them from the sidelines.
Former Fulham FC defender Aaron Hughes has been brought in as the marquee player for this franchise for ISL 3. Hughes formed a fantastic central defensive partnership alongside Brede Hangeland in his heydays in the English Premier League. In the upcoming edition of the ISL, he will be looking to do something similar with French defender Cedric Hengbart.

Anto can join attacks from the back and is an able defender who will be hoping to show his worth in the ISL. Sandesh Jhingan is also likely to feature heavily in the tournament alongside Anto and Gurwinder Singh in the defence.
Mehtab Hossain, Ishfaq Ahmed, Mohammed Rafique, C.K. Vineeth, Mohammed Rafi and Thongkhosiem Haokip are some of the other Indian players who will be featuring for the Kerala Blasters this season.
