New rules, new format, schedule and points table for the 2020-21 I-League
Source: I-League

The upcoming season of the I-League will see a breakaway from the league format where teams play each other twice.

Instead, in Phase I, each team will play against each other once. Then, the teams will be divided into two groups – Group A will consist of the top six teams and Group B will include the bottom five. In Phase II, the Group A teams will play against each other once to determine the winner and Group B teams will also play each other once and the bottom-placed team from Group B will be relegated. The points earned in Phase I will be carried forward by all teams into Phase II.

Please note that the AIFF developmental team Indian Arrows and corporate entry side Sudeva Delhi FC are exempt for relegation.

The league will be played out in four stadiums amidst the bio-bubble in Kolkata – VYBK (Salt Lake Stadium), Kalyani Stadium, Kishore Bharati Krirangan and at the Mohun Bagan Ground.

The 2020-21 season will kick off on January 9, 2021 with new entrants Sudeva Delhi FC taking on newly-promoted Mohammedan SC. The matches will be broadcast live on 1Sports and streamed on their social media platforms.

The tournament will be held as per the COVID-19 SOPs issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and no spectators will be allowed inside the stadium.

Prize Money in INR – Champions: 1 crore; Runners Up: 60 lakhs; Third Place: 40 lakhs; Fourth Place: 25 lakhs.
