The league, this season will introduce a late 9:30 pm kick-off for its Saturday double headers. The regular weekday schedule remains unchanged with matches kicking off at 7:30 pm.

According to a statement released on the ISL website, “The season once again returns to Goa’s three iconic stadiums this winter, featuring 115 games. The first instalment of the schedule announced on Monday runs until January 9, 2022.”

Having missed a record title run by a whisker, last season’s finalists ATK Mohun Bagan will square off with Kerala Blasters FC on the opening game night to commence another intense campaign. SC East Bengal get to start their run into the competition on November 21 against Jamshedpur FC.

Title-holders Mumbai City FC would test a renewed FC Goa resilience as early as November 22, in one of the most high-octane rivalries emerging in the league.
