The fresh Indian Super League, Hindustan's very own football league is going to launch from twelve october 2014, and while the people hypes up for this competition, here is everything you should know about it.
Bringing Indian soccer out of coma
The HeroISL was set up in 2013 after noticing that a lot of Indians are passionate about soccer, but regrettably, have no national football competition with International allure to follow. The Indian Super League aims to turn this around.
It will have eight franchise clubs, owned from people and companies across the country. The league will begin in October and end in December.
The 8 teams that will compete in this competition are:
· Atletico de Kolkata, trained by Antonio Lopez Habas, with Spain as the foreign draft.
· Chennai Titans, assisted by Marco Materazzi with Italy as the foreign draft.
· Delhi Dynamos FC, practiced by Harm van Veldhoven with Netherlands as the foreign draft.
· FC Goa, trained by, Zico with Brazil as the foreign draft.
· Kerala Blasters FC, assisted by David James with England as the foreign draft.
· Mumbai City FC, coached by Peter Reid with England as the foreign draft.
· North East United FC, trained by Ricki Herbert with New Zealand as the foreign draft.
· FC Pune City, coached by Franco Colomba with Italy as the foreign draft.
While building their clubs, each squad will have to aqcuire:
· At least seven foreigners, out of which 2 will be from the club and 5 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
· 14 Indian homegrown players, four of which have to be local players from the city the outfit belongs to.
Important Ownership in the HeroISL
The league is owned by Reliance Industries Ltd, Star India Pvt. Ltd. and IMG Worldwide Inc. It would be televisedbroadcasted exclusively on STAR Sports and will have Hero MotoCorp as the cup; thus the name Hero Indian Super League.
