Kochi is all set to hit the ground with a smash welcoming the Indian Super League today evening, 8:00p.m at Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium. Fans are curious of how the performance will take place between the defending champions ATK and Kerala Blasters.
Unlike the rest three editions, teams are revised in number from eight to ten resulting in bigger window in calendar months i.e. expansion of 2 months to 4 months. New teams included are Bengaluru FC and Jamshedpur FC.
With the recognition of Indian Super League as a National League in Asian Football Confederation, the winners will get a chance into the next season of AFC cup.
Coming to this close two times (In 2014 and 2016) and still being defeated by ATK has sunk the hearts of many Keralites and Kerala Blaster fans but with the new season comes new hope. Fans have come up with the hope that every cloud has a silver lining.
The local boy CK Vineeth and Sandesh Jhingan, who has been named the captain for the season, remain the most influential Indian players for the Blasters. On the other hand, fans of ATK have hopes with the Iain Hume, the top scorer of the ISL with 25 goals.
Goosebumps are accelerating into the hearts of people to watch the exciting performance of the two teams.
