Indian Super League News & Results

The Indian Super League is a professional football league in India, formed in the year 2013. Despite not being a part of the Indian football pyramid, the ISL remains one of the biggest tournaments in India. It used a franchise system instead of the traditional promotion and relegation system, similar to the Major League Soccer (MLS) in USA and the A-League in Australia.

The Indian Super League is played between the months of October and December. The first part of the tournament includes a table format, wherein all 8 teams face each other twice – at home and away. The 4 teams that accumulate the most number of points following their respective 14 games then move on to the second part of the competition.

In the second round, the team that finishes first in the table takes on the team that finishes fourth, while the other fixture consists of a match between the second and third placed teams. These matches are played across two legs. The two teams with an aggregate win over both legs move on to the final of the competition, which determines the winner.

The franchise currently consists of eight teams – Atletico de Kolkata, Chennaiyin FC, Delhi Dynamos, FC Goa, Kerala Blasters, Mumbai City, Northeast United, and Pune City.

Atlético de Kolkata emerged as the first ever winners of the ISL in 2014, while Chennaiyin won the title in 2015.
