The new edition of the state league begun on October 16, 2021.

After an exciting 2020-21 season, the Goa Pro League (GPL) is all set for the launch of its newest edition in 2021-22. The league kicked-off on October 16, 2021, and all the matches are held at the Duler Stadium in Mapusa, Goa.

Just like the previous season, the 2021-22 season of the Goa Pro League have 12 teams battling it out among each other to find the champion of Goan football.

The competition has been cut short to single-leg fixtures across four months, as opposed to the two-legged system that was in place till the 2019-20 season. Every team will face all the other teams once each. This will be followed by a Super League and a Relegation League for the top six and bottom six teams respectively.

The team standing first at the end of the Super League shall be declared as Champions of the Goa Professional League 2021-22 and the team standing last in the Relegation League shall be demoted to GFA First Division in the 2022-23 season.

The last season of GPL saw multiple teams shining in the league with Sporting Clube de Goa eventually winning.

Over the years, the league has also played a role in the rise of several star players like Ronaldo Oliveira (Salgaocar FC, now FC Bengaluru United), Devendra Murgaonkar (Salgaocar FC, now FC Goa), Liston Colaco (FC Goa, now ATK Mohun Bagan), Vincy Barretto (FC Goa, now Kerala Blasters) and so on.

Stadium

All the matches of the 2021-22 Goa Pro League will be hosted by the Duler Stadium in Mapusa. The same stadium was used as the venue for last season’s GPL as well.
