The new Indian Super League(ISL) season is just around the corner and it looks like the authorities have finally decided on the details relating to the new season.
Last season, the ISL was played out pretty successfully amidst a bio-bubble in Goa and according to the latest reports, the organizers are moving in a similar direction.
The FSDL organizes the tournament and they had held a meeting with the CEO’s of all the clubs on Wednesday and in this meeting, the clubs have been told to get ready to play inside another bio-bubble.
Where will the 2021-22 ISL season be held?
Goa, Bengal and Kerala were shortlisted as the three possible states where the 2021-22 ISL season could be played but as per the rumours, the organizers are tilted in favour of Goa.
“The last season in Goa was a successful one, so it does not make sense to look anywhere else,” a source told TOI.

India is just recovering from the second wave of the pandemic and right now, no one knows when the third wave will hit. So the report also claims that FSDL are looking at Qatar and UAE as international options if things take a turn for the worse in India in the coming months.
As things stand, Goa is going to be the likely venue for the new ISL season but the state is going to see elections in the month of February 2022 and this could turn out to be a problem.
When will the new ISL season be held?
As primarily discussed in Wednesday’s meeting the 2021-22 season is likely to start from the 19th of November and will end in March.
