Four group toppers and one second-placed team qualified for the final round.

The I-League Second Division is the second tier of Indian professional football. The 2022-23 season saw 20 teams participating, including six Indian Super League reserves sides, divided into four groups of five teams each, where each team plays each other twice in a home and away format.

Each group winner along with one best runner-up (second-placed team) qualify for the final round and compete for two promotion spots to the I-League. After a gruelling preliminary round, five teams qualified for the final round.

Let’s take a closer look at the teams that made it to the final round of the I-League Second Division.

Delhi FC

Delhi FC have shown some remarkable performance throughout the league and have emerged as one of the strongest contenders for the title. They topped the group A in the preliminary round of the I-League Second Division, winning five matches out of eight, scoring 20 goals and conceding just five. They are a strong team with experienced players and will be looking to secure their promotion to the I-League.

United SC

FC Bengaluru United

FC Bengaluru United were a consistent team in the league, winning five out of eight matches that helped them secure the first place in Group C. The entire contingent played exceptionally well in these games and hopefully, they'll have more such outings in the final rounds.
