Matches


The ISL will run alongside the 2018-19 season of the I-League, and both domestic and foreign players have had to make the choice between both the top tier football leagues of India. Also, there will be a major change in the way matches have been played in the ISL previously.


Instead of playing two matches on a single match day, the ISL 2018-19 season will see a single match being played daily. All kickoffs will begin from 19:30 hours in the evening.


Teams


Like the previous edition of 2017-18, the new season will feature ten teams with changes in the management and of course, players. The ISL teams are ATK (Kolkata), Bengaluru FC, Chennaiyin FC, Delhi Dynamos, Goa FC, Jamshedpur FC, Kerala Blasters, Mumbai City FC, NorthEast United and Pune City FC.


Chennaiyin FC will be playing as the defending champions having won the Indian Super League 2017-18 season with a victory over Bengaluru FC in the finals. Also, since last season the champions of the ISL will be granted a spot in the AFC Cup, Asia’s second tier club competition. However, the berth for the AFC Champions League will be be reserved for the I-League champions.


Players


Despite the usual rumors, the ISL 2018-19 doesn’t feature big names compared to its previous editions. The spotlight will be on legendary Australian footballer Tim Cahill, who will be donning the jersey of the “men of steel” Jamshedpur FC. Other notable names include former Portuguese international Paulo Machado who will be playing for Mumbai City FC and Venezuelan striker Miku, playing his second season for Bengaluru FC.


The number of foreign players in squads has been reduced from eight to seven with the salary cap also being reduced. However, if any marquee players are signed, their salaries will not be accounted under the salary cap.
