The ISL Trophy has been bagged by some of the most incredible teams over the years.

Winning the Indian Super League (ISL) Trophy is a major achievement considering the level of competition at the highest tier of the Indian football league pyramid. Making it into the playoffs is a difficult task in itself and then fending off the best of the best clubs in the knockout fixtures takes an entirely different level of mentality and commitment. 

Over the years, the ISL has seen entertaining finals producing memorable champions. These clubs had the ability and the ambition to go forth and secure the ISL Trophy.

As the 2023-24 season progresses toward the final of the playoffs, here is a glance at the past winners of the ISL Trophy: 

Atletico de Kolkata – 2014

Atletico de Kolkata won the inaugural season of the ISL by defeating Kerala Blasters FC in the final. Mohammed Rafique’s injury-time goal caused an eruption of emotions by the fans at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai, etching Atletico de Kolkata’s name in history as the first-ever champions of the competition.

Chennaiyin FC – 2015

The 2015 Indian Super League playoff final between Chennaiyin FC and FC Goa remains as one of the most iconic finals of all time. The Marina Machans emerged as 3-2 winners on the glimmering night at the Fatorda Stadium in Goa, thanks to injury-time goals from CFC led by Stiven Mendoza who won the Golden Boot that season.

Atletico de Kolkata – 2016

Atletico de Kolkata ended the 2016 season of the Indian Super League as champions, adding a second title to their cabinet. They met Kerala Blasters FC, making it a rematch of the final in 2014. In a nail-biter of a contest, the match went into penalties where the Kolkata-based club won by a 4-3 scoreline as the regulation period ended 1-1 after extra-time.

Chennaiyin FC – 2017-18

Chennaiyin FC won the 2017-18 season of the Indian Super League to keep up the pace with Atletico de Kolkata and become two-time winners of the competition. It was the first campaign with 10 teams in the league with Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC joining. The Marina Machans met the ‘newcomers’ BFC in the final and emerged as 3-2 winners, thanks to goals from Mailson Alves (2) and Raphael Augusto.

Bengaluru FC – 2018-19

Bengaluru FC came mighty close to winning the ISL Trophy in their first season in the competition. However, they finally lifted the trophy in their second appearance in the 2018-19 term by beating FC Goa, courtesy a solitary goal from Rahul Bheke in extra-time, breaking FCG’s hearts once again.

ATK – 2019-20

A newly branded ATK were one of the favourites to win the 2019-20 season and lived up to the billing. The Kolkata-based club, formerly Atletico de Kolkata, secured its third ISL Trophy by defeating Chennaiyin FC in the final, stopping them from achieving the same feat. That season is also popular since it saw the introduction of the League Winners’ Shield for the table toppers, an accolade which was bagged by FC Goa.  

Mumbai City FC – 2020-21

The 2020-21 season of the ISL remains the only term where one club emerged as both the ISL Shield and Trophy winner. Mumbai City FC were dominant in that campaign, finishing top of the table on goal difference and winning the ISL playoffs by defeating ATK Mohun Bagan in the final.

Hyderabad FC – 2021-22

Manolo Marquez’s reputation in the Indian Super League was at its highest after he guided Hyderabad FC to the Trophy in the 2021-22 season. It was the season of the underdog considering the Nizams finished bottom in their debut ISL season two years ago. The outfit beat Kerala Blasters FC to win the title.

ATK Mohun Bagan – 2022-23

ATK Mohun Bagan won the Indian Super League Trophy in 2022-23 by defeating Bengaluru FC in the final. The tie went into penalties after a 2-2 finish after extra-time. Juan Ferrando’s men emerged victorious by 4-3 in the tie-breaker.
