The change in the schedule is announced, and we bring you the new fixtures list.
Khel Now had recently published an article that stated that the Hero Indian Super League 2018 will undergo a change in its schedule due to uncalled for situations. Bengaluru FC’s AFC Cup commitments and the Government of India’s pilot project ‘Khelo India’ will see the league’s fixtures getting affected, and that has been announced by the IMG-group owned league.
Khel Now calls out to the fans that were travelling to understand that these changes were not in the hands of ISL and should try to go adjust their schedule per se.
Kindly note the following changes to the Hero Indian Super League 2017-18 fixtures.
