In a pleasant news for followers of Indian football, the fixtures of the 2021-22 season of the Indian Super League season have now been announced. The season returns to Goa’s three stadiums this time in an edition which will witness 115 matches starting from November 19. Only the first installment of the entire schedule has been announced yet and it runs until January 9, 2022.
For the first time in the history of the competition, there will be a late 9:30 pm (IST) start for its Saturday double-headers. However, the regular weekday schedule of India's top-tier league remains unchanged with the same 7:30 pm kick-off. After having narrowly missed out on the ISL 2021 title last season, ATK Mohun Bagan will take on the Kerala Blasters FC in the opening match of the competition on November 19. On the other hand, SC East Bengal begin their competition on November 21 against Jamshedpur FC.
Meanwhile, the reigning champions Mumbai City FC would be up against FC Goa on November 22 in what is emerging as one of the most engrossing rivalries of the league, especially in recent years. The much-anticipated Kolkata derby with the SC East Bengal vs the ATK Mohun Bagan match is slated to be held on November 27.
It has also been confirmed that the remaining matches of the tournament will be announced in December 2021 with just the first 11 rounds being released for now.
