OneFootball will be the place for Indian football fans around the world to watch their teams from back home and for a larger international audience to discover ISL for the first time. At OneFootball we are committed to bringing fans closer to the action than ever before and with the ISL we have another amazing competition for football fans to experience.”
An ISL spokesperson added: “We are pleased to partner with OneFootball bringing another power-packed season of ISL to fans worldwide. Hero Indian Super League has consistently engaged with the young audience, creating an intrigued base of fans across the globe. Through our partnership with OneFootball, ISL will be able to continue its endeavour to appeal to the youth and globalise Indian football.”
