As the last two seasons were only played across Goa due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the 2022-23 season of the ISL is back on full scale and the fans will be able to enjoy the teams at their home stadiums. The matches will be held across 10 cities and 11 stadiums one for each team in a home-and-away format. This season every team’s morale will be at its peak, as once again they will be playing in front of their home fans. This will be affecting the result considerably and it will be an amazing sight to behold.

The league stage of the ninth season of Hero ISL is currently underway and every team will try their best to get qualified for the playoffs and win the ISL title. FC Goa despite being one of the best teams in the competition, has felt short on many occasions. They have been the runners-up twice. The same goes for the Kerela side who has played in the finals three times but could never get their hands on the ISL title. It will be an interesting event to see as all the teams have something to prove.
