Download Indian Super League 2014 Schedule
Indian Super League is expected to set a new record in India. Football is certainly not in even the longest list of things that a foreigner would write down about India. A story that to an Indian journalist who covered the FIFA World Cup that was held in South Africa an English journalist had asked, “What are you doing here? Covering the Cricket Wold Cup?” is a proof of that. When the news of spotting an Indian flag in a Brazil World Cup match became headlines it became clear that even many Indians have this prejudice. Long story short, football is not a popular game in India but that is about to change with over 60+ matches scheduled to be played in 3 months span. The next 3 months are going to be super exciting for the fans of football. Having said that, we have provided ISL 2014 schedule and fixtures along with the teams participating in Indian Super League 2014 in this article.
These prejudices and sarcastic comments are about to be forgotten soon as India takes a big stride towards fostering the game in her homeland. Hero Indian Super League known by its acronym ISL is expected to change the picture of football in India. Offering a platform for both established and budding players in India to play with and against some of the best international players ISL will also add to the glitz and glamour of football in India. Since Bollywood biggies and cricket stars like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly are endorsing the tournament, we expect Indian Super League 2014 to be a big success. Champions League 2014 is already been played in India. We can say that the next few months belongs to the sports.
Sleeping Giant to be Awaken
It is only a myth that football has few scope in India. If it was true we would not have seen packed houses in Nehru Cup, SAAF cup and AFC challenge cup matches. We may not have made our presence felt so strongly in international football but there is no shortage of passionate players and fans. The success of ISL will break this myth. We shall provide all the updates related to the ISL and other sports in the special sports section
It is true that certain regions in India are more welcome to football than others. The ISL will act as a bridge between them and the other regions where football is a little less popular. What is more important is that it will help in tapping the resources in those regions and improving infrastructure through its various grassroot level programs. An environment more conducive for football will be a big boost to its growth.
