The FSDL on Friday announced the schedule for the first 11 rounds of the competition.

The Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 season is just under a month away and the fixtures for the first half of the campaign were announced on Friday. The season kicks off on November 20 with defending champions ATK Mohun Bagan taking on Kerala Blasters in a repeat of the finals of the inaugural campaign.

Moreover, the much-anticipated Kolkata Derby is all set to mark the debut of newcomers SC East Bengal, who begin their campaign against arch-rivals ATK Mohun Bagan on November 27. There are plenty of mouth-watering games on display after the ISL begins and here are the fixtures, timings and venues for each team.

Chennaiyin FC

Chennaiyin FC weren’t able to get a fairtytale ending to their remarkable story last season and have undergone prominent changes over the summer. But the two-time Indian Super League champions will look to make it ‘third-time the charm’ and continue their heroics from the late half of last season.

The winners of last season’s league phase and coveted AFC Champions League spot, FC Goa have undergone major changes in the summer. Yet, they will look to make full use of the ‘home advantage’ and continue their free-flowing, winning brand of football to finally win the title.

The new ‘big boys’ in the block, Mumbai City FC are THE team to watch in the Indian Super League after an impressive makeover in the summer.

NorthEast United

NorthEast United experienced a major downfall last season after their heroics in the 2018-19 season, forcing a much-needed overhaul to the squad. Now with new players, a young coach and an unpredictable squad, they’ll look to probably head in as the underdogs to repeat the heroics of 2019.

Odisha FC

Another side to barely miss out on a playoffs spot last season, Odisha FC will want to finish the job this time around. They’ve roped in a highly-experienced coach in Stuart Baxter and will hope he can use his expertise to not only help them play some exciting attacking football, but also punch above their weights to gain a playoffs spot.
