ATLÉTICO DE KOLKATA


Team Profile
Being India’s footballing mecca, it is no surprise that Kolkata quickly embraced the Hero Indian Super League. The “City of Joy” was the first ISL city to officially announce its team, christened Atlético de Kolkata. The name comes from the team’s partnership with current Spanish champions Atlético de Madrid, who are part-owners of the club, along with Kolkata’s favourite son, cricketing legend Sourav Ganguly. Premier city businessmen Harshavardhan Neotia, Sanjiv Goenka, and Utsav Parekh also hold stakes in the team.
On the footballing side, Atlético de Kolkata have set about ensuring that the city, which is home to some of the oldest and most successful clubs in Indian football, will have an ISL team which can follow in Kolkata’s proud footballing tradition. They announced former Spanish defender and veteran manager Antonio López Habas as the club’s head coach, while Kolkata football legend Jose Barreto will serve as an assistant coach.
The team have also signed Luis García, the ex-Atlético de Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool striker who was instrumental in Liverpool’s Champions League-winning campaign in 2004-05, as its marquee player. García and his teammates will be mesmerising crowds at the famous Salt Lake Stadium.

DELHI DYNAMOS FC



The nation’s capital has often played host to prestigious international tournaments, such as the Nehru Cup and South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Championship, but has long been starved of a top-flight football team of its own. Until now. Delhi’s winning bid for a Hero Indian Super League club, subsequently named Delhi Dynamos FC, will capitalise on the city’s football fever. The club is owned by DEN Networks, one of the nation’s leading cable distributors.
Delhi Dynamos FC have a tie-up with Dutch giants Feyenoord Rotterdam, which can count Dutch legends Ruud Gullit, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, and Robin Van Persie among its alumni. Feyenoord will provide the Delhi club with technical expertise and assist in the team’s overall development. In keeping with the Dutch flavour of the club, experienced coach Harm van Veldhoven has been brought in to be the Delhi Dynamos FC manager.
Although the Oranje-inspired football will show on the pitch, Delhi fans will also fill up the 60,000-capacity Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium (New Delhi) to cheer the star power on display. The club have signed the legendary ex-Juventus and Italy striker, Alessandro del Piero, as their marquee international player. Football fans in the nation’s capital will soon be seeing the star striker and his teammates in action!

FC Goa



One of the traditional powerhouse regions of Indian football, Goa was bound to be one of the cities to participate in the Hero Indian Super League from its inception. The city’s ISL club, FC Goa, is co-owned by electronics manufacturers Videocon, Dattaraj Salgaocar, and Shrinivas Dempo. The latter also owns I-League team Dempo SC, which has formed a close link with the ISL club.
This affiliation will be seen on the pitch, as all of the team’s 14 domestic players are from Dempo SC. Goa’s main footballing stadium, the famous Fatorda Stadium, which Dempo SC shares with Goa’s other football clubs, will play host to FC Goa’s matches, as well. Football-loving Goans now have an ISL team to add to their state’s rich footballing history!

FC Pune City



Pune is quickly gaining a reputation as the breeding ground for emerging talent in Indian football. The city has recently seen the establishment of new footballing academies, as well as tie-ups with renowned international clubs. This trend is set to continue in the Hero Indian Super League, where Wadhawan Group-owned FC Pune City have a partnership with Italian giants ACF Fiorentina.
The Fiorentina influence will be seen on the pitch. One of the few Italian clubs to buck the country’s tradition of strong, defensive football, Fiorentina will help implement a free-flowing, attacking playing style at FC Pune City. Pune have also brought in experienced Italian manager Franco Colomba to instil this footballing philosophy.
FC Pune City’s marquee player is David Trezeguet, one of two World Cup-winners to be participating in the ISL. The former Juventus and France striker will bring years of experience and attacking pedigree to the side. He and the rest of the FC Pune City team will be bringing exciting football to the Balewadi Stadium!

Kerala Blasters FC



Football-mad Kerala has long yearned for a club which could match the exploits of the state teams which have made their mark in the Santosh Trophy. Fans have gotten their wish, with the Hero Indian Super League club Kerala Blasters FC. Cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar – whose nickname “Master Blaster” is the inspiration for the team name – is a part-owner and lends immediate star power to the club. Co-owner Prasad V. Potluri (Chairman and Managing Director, PVP Ventures) brings tremendous business experience as well as a passion for Indian sports.
The star power will extend to the pitch, as well. David James, the former Liverpool and England goalkeeper, has a dual role with the club, as the team’s marquee player as well as its manager. He was part of the decision-making team which made Michael Chopra, the ex-Newcastle United star striker, the team’s first pick in the International Player Draft on August 21, 2014. The two high-profile Premier League veterans will bring unrivalled experience to the team.
Kerala Blasters FC will be based out of Kochi and play its matches in the 75,000-capacity Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Mumbai City FC :cool:



my home team :proud:

The maximum city is in the midst of a footballing renaissance, with new teams springing up to fill the void left by the departure of some of Mumbai’s old powerhouses. The city’s Hero Indian Super League club, Mumbai City FC, aims to restore Mumbai to its traditional standing in Indian football. True to the city’s roots, there is an element of Bollywood to the team, as Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor is one of the owners, along with Bimal Parekh.
The team’s brain trust includes Arunava Chaudhuri, a respected football enthusiast. His background in German football played an integral role in Mumbai City FC’s signing of Manuel Friedrich, the former Borussia Dortmund and Germany defender. Friedrich’s vast experience, not to mention his considerable defensive ability, will be a valuable asset as Mumbai City FC builds a competitive squad to challenge for top spot in the ISL.
Mumbai City FC will look to engage with its city’s rapidly-growing base of football fans. Mumbaikars should watch out for the latest sporting entertainment heading to their city!

North East United FC



Northeast India has long been known as one of India’s footballing hotbeds. The national team’s first post-independence captain, Talimeran Ao, hailed from the region, as does modern legend Baichung Bhutia. It was this tradition that attracted Bollywood star John Abraham into bidding for a northeast-based Hero Indian Super League club. NorthEast United FC, which is also co-owned by I-League club Shilllong Lajong, will be based out of Guwahati.
Ricki Herbert, the veteran former New Zealand international who also led New Zealand to the 2010 FIFA World Cup as manager, has been brought in by the club in a managerial role. NorthEast United also announced Joan Capdevila, a member of Spain’s title-winning teams at both UEFA Euro 2008 and FIFA World Cup 2010 as its marquee player. The ex-Villarreal right-back brings vast experience to what is otherwise a young squad.
The youthful nature of the side is in accordance with the philosophy of the owners, who want to establish a club which can serve as a platform for the region’s young footballers. One of the key aims is to propel north-east footballers to national recognition, and the Indian national team. NorthEast United is counting on its young guns to take the region’s proud footballing pedigree to new heights!

Delhi Dynamos :strong:
Delhi also have former Feyenoord u19 player Stijn Houben who will earn 60k for the 3 months he'll be in India. He'll pay for his studies this way.
Before getting released by Feyenoord this summer, he earned 30k a year which is the average salary Feyenoord u19 players get per year.

Mumbai's stadium as well as Kochi's and Goa's are also cricket stadiums?
