The 2022-23 Indian Super League (ISL) season kicks off on October 7th, 2022 when last year’s runners-up Kerala Blasters host East Bengal FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi.

The Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 season kicks off on October 7, 2022, in Kochi. The opening game of the new campaign will be between Kerala Blasters and East Bengal FC at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

On October 9, Hyderabad FC, the defending ISL champions, begin their title defence in front of their home crowd as they take on Mumbai City FC, the former champions, at the GMC Balayogi Athletic Stadium in Gachibowli. Meanwhile, the 2021-22 League Shield Winners Jamshedpur FC will play their opening clash against Odisha FC at the JRD Tata Sports Complex on October 11.

ATK Mohun Bagan and East Bengal FC will face off in India’s largest derby on October 29 and February 25 of the following year at Kolkata’s illustrious Vivekananda Yuvabharati Krirangan (Salt Lake Stadium). 

After a hiatus of two seasons, supporters will also return to the stadiums during the 2022–23 season. Since each Matchweek is scheduled between Thursday and Sunday, the ISL has devised a fixture list that includes weekend games, aligning it with the top international football leagues.

The ISL 2022–23 season will include 117 matches of high-intensity football action at ten locations across the nation. The ISL league stage will last nearly five months for the first time, apart from the playoffs, semi-finals, and finals.

Each club will play 20 league matches – 10 each at home and away through the autumn till next spring as the league stage draws to a close on February 26.

All ISL teams are currently participating in Asia’s oldest competition, the Durand Cup, as they gear up for the new season. All Indian football stakeholders have been determined to create a more extended football calendar that provides players with more competitive matches throughout the year. The Super Cup will follow the ISL in April 2023.

This season onwards, Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) has also introduced a new playoff format for the league, adding two exciting matches to the calendar. The top two teams at the end of the league stage will automatically qualify for the semi-finals. Teams between 3rd and 6th will feature in a single-leg playoff to determine the other two semi-finalists.
