Founded on 21 October 2013 in partnership with IMG, Reliance Industries, and Star Sports, the Indian Super League was launched with the goal of growing the sport of football in India and increase its exposure in the country. The Competition’s first season took place in 2014 with eight teams. During the first three seasons of the Indian Super League, the competition operated without official recognition from the Asian Football Confederation, the governing body for the sports in Asia. However, before the 2017-18 season, the competition earned recognition from the AFC, expanded to ten teams, and extended its schedule to five months.

Unlike most football leagues around the world, the Indian Super League does not use promotions and relegations, instead choosing to grow the league through expansion, similar, to Major League Soccer in the United States.

Yet, a formal structure for promotion and relegation will be introduced by 2023-24. During the first five seasons, three teams were crowned champions: ATK in 2014 and 2016, and Chennai in 2015 and 2017-2018 and in 2018-2019 Bengaluru FC triumphed.

Competition Format:

During the 2018-19 season, the Indian Super League will run from September to March. All ten teams play each other twice, home and away for eighteen matches each. At the end of the season, the competition ran from October to December. The regular season would begin in October and end by early December while the playoffs would take place within the next two or three weeks. The regular season would be fourteen matches long. The top four sides of the end qualify for the playoffs. The first round of the playoffs sees the first-placed team while the second-placed team faces the third.

 During the playoffs, the first round is played in a two-legged format with both teams playing each other at their home venues.  At the end of the two matches, the teams which lead on aggregate would move on to the final. The final is a single-leg match that takes place in a neutral venue.  If scores were tied on aggregate in the first round or in the final, 30 minutes of extra time would be used to determine the winner and finally, if still tied, Penalties would be given to both the teams.
