It’s a mystery for the football fans in India who are eagerly waiting to witness the 4th edition of ISL League. Every team has their eyes on the foreign players and Indian players to sign up for the upcoming season, but few of them followed different strategies in the player’s auction. The Indian national player’s auction has taken part on July 23rd where ten clubs offered with equal opportunity to sign the players.
This is a great challenge for the clubs to pick the right player for increasing the team strength. Another surprising aspect in the ISL 2018 would be two new teams which are going to make their presence for the first time in the Indian football league. So every team fights for the championship from the beginning of the tournament as expected. The auctions also completed, and teams also picked the players for the challenge.
Less than two months of time for the ISL season teams are started their training season with their members. The extension of team and schedule make the tournament as an entertaining one for the audience. The player’s drafts are made as per the regulations by considering the foreign and local players collaboration. For each team 17 Indian players draft fixed as a limit. In the meantime, 8 foreign players draft will be allowed for every team.
