The Hero Indian Super League (ISL) is India’s most prestigious football championship league. It replaced I-league as the country’s top-tier football league in 2019 after a proposal presented by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on domestic structural reforms in India. The objective of the ISL is to increase awareness about the sport in the country and develop talent at the grassroots levels.

The Indian Super League was initiated with a vision to make India a footballing superpower and increase its chances to qualify for the 2026 World Cup. IMG, a global sports event and talent management company, shook hands with Reliance Industries andStar Sports to establish the league on 21 October 2013. 

Eyeing the same level of success as the Indian Premier League, Bollywood and cricket celebrities along with prominent businessmen took the opportunity to invest in the 8 teams that would play in the ISL. 

The 8 teams initially taking part in the Indian Super League were Delhi Dynamos, Mumbai City F.C, F.C Pune City, F.C Goa, Kerala Blasters F.C, Chennaiyin F.C, Atletico de Kolkata (now known as ATK), and a team from the 7 sister states called NorthEast United F.C. 

From the 2017-2018 season onwards, the league expanded from 8 teams to 10. I-League clubs Bengaluru F.C and Jamshedpur F.C joined the Indian Super League to increase the level of competition in the league. 

In 2019, after playing for five years in the league, F.C Pune City was dissolved due to financial reasons, which gave rise to Hyderabad F.C. Delhi Dynamos shifted their base to Odisha and were rebranded to Odisha FC

The inaugural season of the Hero Indian Super League gathered a lot of excitement from Indian footballing fans. A league that was commercialised and had all the glitz and glamour which the audience was used to seeing in the Indian Premier League, felt like a dream come true for hardcore football fans in the country.

The draft for domestic players took place on 22nd and 23rd July 2014. A total of 84 players were up for grabs. On 21st August 2014, the draft for international players took place in Mumbai. The first season saw a plethora of international star footballers take part in the ISL as coaches and players. Some of the most notable names were Alessandro Del Piero, Robert Pires, Luis Garcia, David Trezeguet, Elano, David James. 

Adding a touch of stardom to the Indian Super League, prominent Indian celebrities like Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor had invested their finances and passion in various clubs. 

The first ball of the Indian Super League history was kicked on 12th October 2014, when ATK hosted Mumbai City FC. Since then the league has witnessed some thrilling and nail-biting encounters. The first season came to an end when ATK won the title. In the same season, Brazilian striker Elano Blumer was awarded the golden boot for scoring a total of 8 goals, while Indian goalkeeper Sandip Nandy won the golden glove award. 

The first game between ATK and Mumbai drew a television audience of 75 million. By the end of the first ISL season, an estimated 429 million viewership was reported. These numbers were more than what India drew for the 2014 FIFA World Cup as well as the Premier League. Meanwhile, rural Indian drew 101 million viewers. 

After the first season, the club owners invested some of the revenue to improve the infrastructure of stadiums to continue providing fans with the best experience possible. 

The grassroots program was also announced after the success of the first season. Under this program, all the clubs would create academies to promote football among the youth of their respective cities. The grassroots program will train and make young talented kids ready to play for the senior teams. This system is prevalent at clubs in England, Spain, Germany where the next best potential players for the club could be a product of their academies.

In the first 3 years of the competition, the league was played from October to December. Since 2017 the league is played over 5 months starting from October till March. In the 5 months, these 10 teams would play each other twice, once at home and then an away game. 

A total of 18 matches are played by every club. A win would fetch the team 3 points. If the teams draw a game, they will share 1 point each, and a loss results in no points to the team.  

If a club is on level points with another, the team that has scored more and conceded fewer goals will sit above the other sides in the league table. 

The top 4 teams will play 2 legged qualifiers to reach the finals. In the ISL format, the team that finishes 1st will play the 2 legged fixture against the team that finishes 4th, while the team that finishes 2nd would play the team that finishes 3rd.  

At the end of the 2 legged fixtures, whichever team has more goals on aggregate will progress to the final match. Should the clubs be equal on goals even after the 90 minutes of the 2nd leg, then an extra 30 minutes are played. Even then if the scores are tied, the match will go into penalties. The finals are one-legged fixtures that are played at a neutral venue.
