East Bengal have roped in Subhas Bhowmick in their support staff ahead of the Super Cup, and the club have said that he will work in combination with coach Khalid Jamil.

When Bengaluru FC (BFC) joined the Indian Super League (ISL) fold in 2017, most people believed that the 2017-18 I-League would be a virtual shoot-out between the Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan and East Bengal.

With all Goan clubs barring Churchill Brothers out of the equation following withdrawals in 2016-17, it seemed Aizawl FC's fairy-tale run to the title would be an exception and the dominance of the Kolkata clubs would resume. After all, these teams had won six of the first eight National Football...

Advantage Minerva but 'predicting is difficult'

Less than a year ago, they were battling to avoid the wooden spoon. Now, Minerva Punjab go into the final round as favourites to win the I-League

The I-League season will reach its thrilling climax on Thursday, with three matches kicking off simultaneously and four teams in all -- Minerva Punjab, NEROCA, East Bengal and Mohun Bagan -- in with a chance of winning the title.
