    Hero I-League 2021-22 to resume on March 3

    The Hero I-League 2021-22 season will resume on Thursday, March 3, 2022, in Kolkata after a brief pause to ensure the safety of all the players and officials involved in the league.

    Continuing in the same vein as before, the Hero I-League will be played from within the safety of a bio-bubble, which will begin on February 20, with the players and officials needing to travel with three negative RT-PCR tests before joining the bio-bubble. Additionally, on the advice of Dr. Harsh Mahajan, Member of AIFF’s Sports Medical Committee, every players is also required to do a 12 lead ECG before arrival.

    Once inside the bio-bubble, each individual needs to serve 7 days in quarantine, with three more tests being done. On receiving three negative RT-PCR tests in quarantine, the players and officials will be free to operate from within the bubble and attend training sessions, meals, team meetings, and matches.

    “We had stopped the league initially as we wanted to ensure the safety of the players and officials involved, and did not want COVID-19 to spread,” said AIFF Leagues CEO Mr. Sunando Dhar. “Now, after getting the clearance from the relevant authorities and a go-ahead from Dr. Harsh Mahajan, we feel that with the positivity rates going down, this is the best time to restart the season.”

    “I have been in touch with all the clubs, and they have all expressed their excitement, and are looking forward to the restart,” he added.

    There will be no change in format for the Hero I-League, with the 13 teams to play against each other once in a round-robin format, in the first round. Once the first round is over, the teams will be divided into two groups – Group A will consist of the top seven teams that will fight for the championship title, while Group B will consist of the bottom six teams that will be embroiled in a relegation battle. Each club will play their opponents in their respective groups once in a round-robin format, in the second round.

    The matches will be played across three venues – Kalyani Municipal Stadium, Naihati Stadium, and the Mohun Bagan Ground.

    They just hate I League and want it to start when ISL is over basically. I'm glad that some players will move over from I league to ISL like Leander, Nongdangba etc.. These loan moves will help a lot of players to play for atleast 6 more weeks possibly

    But no one can move now. Clubs can sign only players who are free-agents since Feb 1.

    Do you think that I-league (any way 3-4 month league) should be played in single transfer window e.g. September to January or January to April 

    this can save lot of money on foreign players and clubs might find decent players without club from better league

    yes. i league should he held separately after or before ISL as it was like in 2016. eg: players like ck vineeth and rino anto played so many games in a year due to that arrangement.
