I-League kicks off today


Kolkata: The 2020-21 season of the Hero I-League kicks off here on Saturday with multiple clashes, including a much-awaited opener between debutants Sudeva Delhi FC and newly-promoted Mohammedan SC.

In the first day’s other fixtures, defending champions Chennai City FC will take on Gokulam Kerala, while Aizawl FC face RoundGlass Punjab. While Sudeva Delhi FC is the first club from the national capital to play in the Hero I-League, Mohammedan SC made it by winning the I-League Qualifier last October.

Meanwhile, both Gokulam and Chennai City FC would look to improve their performances from last season and aim to claim the silverware.
