The Indian Super League is likely to introduce 9:30 pm kick-off timing for its weekend double-headers for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League. The league follows a 7:30 pm start in the evening for weekdays, while for double-header weekends, the first game used to start at 5:30.

The 2021-22 Indian Super League is set to start on November 19, as per reports, with the match between ATK-Mohun Bagan and Kerala Blasters FC – the possible curtain-raiser. Like the last season, the league would be entirely staged in Goa, inside a bio-bubble, with the pandemic threat in the country yet to fade out.

As per the latest reports of the PTI, FSDL (Football Sports Development Limited), the organisers of the ISL, is likely to introduce 9:30 pm kick-off timing for its weekend double-headers for the upcoming season. The league follows a 7:30 pm start in the evening for weekdays, while, for double-header weekends, the first game used to start at 5:30 pm, which can be moved to the 9:30 pm slot.

“The league had informed clubs on the possible change to the weekend double-header start. From players point of view, the 9:30 pm will be a much-welcomed decision as it will bring respite from the sweltering humidity," as reported by PTI.
