New Delhi: The new season of the I-League football tournament will kick off on November 30 in Aizawl, the All India Football Federation announced.

“The fixtures have been drawn after consulting our marketing partners FSDL, broadcasters DSport, and all the clubs involved in the competition,” said I-League CEO Sunando Dhar.

“This season, we have a lot more flexibility as far as the fixtures are concerned, with the kick-off timings being at 2 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm” he added.

“I’m sure this would make all the clubs happy. Like always, we are looking forward to a great season of the Hero I-League. Wishing all the clubs best of luck for the season,” he further added.

Earlier this week, the AIFF had announced DSport as the new broadcasters of the league, a move that was lauded by a number of club officials.

The opening game on November 30 will be between Aizawl FC and Mohun Bagan at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Aizawl, Mizoram, at 2 pm IST.

The last season’s title was won by Chennai City FC (pictured above).
