2020-21 ISL fixtures announced, NorthEast United up first
After a long wait, we finally have the fixture list for the 2020-21 Hero Indian Super League!
Under new regime with head coach Sergio Lobera at the helm, Mumbai City will open the 2020-21 league campaign with an away game against NorthEast United on November 21 at the Tilak Maidan in a 7.30pm kickoff. A second consecutive away game follows for the Islanders in the form of a highly-anticipated fixture against FC Goa on November 27 at the Fatorda Stadium at 7.30pm.
Mumbai City will play the first of four consecutive designated ‘home’ games against new ISL new-boys SC East Bengal on December 1 at our home venue for the season, the GMC Bambolim Stadium. In a season that will see the return of double-headers for the first time since 2017-18, the Islanders will take on Odisha FC at home on December 6 in a 5pm kickoff.
Two more home games follow for the Islanders in quick succession against Chennaiyin FC (December 9, 7.30pm) and Jamshedpur FC (December 14, 7.30pm), before Sergio Lobera’s men play their final game of 2020 away to Hyderabad FC at the Tilak Maidan at 5pm.
Mumbai City will begin the new year with a home fixture against Kerala Blasters on January 2 at 7.30pm and will close out the first half of the season with two crucial away games to Bengaluru FC and ATK Mohun Bagan FC on January 5 and 11 respectively.
