I-League champions Minerva Punjab are likely to play their continental home matches at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar.
It was previously touted that Minerva would play at the TranStadia Arena in Ahmedabad but recent developments have seen the Chandigarh-based side receive a green signal from AFC (Asian Football Confederation) to play at the renovated Kalinga Stadium.
"Yes we will be using Kalinga. Hopefully that will give us great home advantage. We will start camping there by the end of February or definitely by the end of March to make the most of home advantage," said Minerva Punjab owner Ranjit Bajaj.
