The starstruck Indian Super League, Hindustan's exclusive football competition is going to commence from 12-10, and as the football fans hypes up for this soccer competition, here is primarily what you should know about it.
Taking Indian football out of hibernation
The HeroISL was organized in 2013 after noticing that many Indians are keen about soccer, but regrettably, have no national soccer league with International attention to support. The Indian Super League aims to turn this around.
It will consist of 8 franchise clubs, owned from people and companies across the country. The league will start in October and end in December.
The 8 teams that will compete in this competition are:
· Atletico de Kolkata, practiced by Antonio Lopez Habas, with Spain as the foreign draft.
· Chennai Titans, coached by Marco Materazzi with Italy as the foreign draft.
· Delhi Dynamos FC, assisted by Harm van Veldhoven with Netherlands as the foreign draft.
· FC Goa, assisted by, Zico with Brazil as the foreign draft.
· Kerala Blasters FC, practiced by David James with England as the foreign draft.
· Mumbai City FC, practiced by Peter Reid with England as the foreign draft.
· North East United FC, assisted by Ricki Herbert with New Zealand as the foreign draft.
· FC Pune City, assisted by Franco Colomba with Italy as the foreign draft.
While building their teams, each outfit will have to aqcuire:
· At least 7 foreigners, out of which two will be from the outfit and five will be from the foreign player draft;
· One star player, which in the words of AIFF is "A foreign recruit who has represented his country in any of the continental championships like the European Championship, Copa America, African Nations Cup, Asian Cup, or FIFA World Cup will be called a marquee player;" and
· fourteen Indian domestic players, four of which have to be local players from the city the outfit belongs to.
