The 2022/23 Indian Super League (ISL) season kicked off on October 7 with a match between Kerala Blasters and East Bengal FC at Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Kochi. The match was won by the local team by 3-1.
The current ISL season will be a treat for Indian football fans as they will return to the stadiums after two seasons.
The renowned competition will feature 117 high-octane matches spread across ten venues in India. This will be the first time the competition has lasted five months. This season will also include a new playoff format involving the top six teams.
Each team is scheduled to play 20 league games, 10 of which will be at home and 10 at away stadiums. The games will start at 7:30 p.m. IST.
With the contest taking place in a longer format this time around, ISL has no doubt been in talks with various brands for sponsorship deals. Let’s take a look at the sponsors for the ISL 2022/23 season:
One of the oldest title sponsors in any league in the world, Hero has partnered with ISL since its inception. The New Delhi-based Indian two-wheeler maker has extended the deal in 2020 for three years.
The organizers have also tapped India-based online sports betting platform 1XBAT as an associate sponsor for this season.
The tournament has signed a collaboration with Jalandhar-based sports equipment company, Nivea. The deal started in 2018 and since then the company has been part of ISL as a ball partner.
Official License Partner:
Apart from the aforementioned brands, ISL for its current season has announced an Indian fantasy sports platform, Dream11, as its official fantasy football partner.
Additionally, the tournament has also signed London-based digital collectibles platform Terra Virtua as the Official Digital Collectibles Partner for the 2022/23 season.
