The organizers of the I-League announced on Monday that the 2021-22 season will be postponed for at least six weeks due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in India. The current season of the I-League, which is also the 15th overall, began on December 27 in a bio-bubble environment in West Bengal.
Just a few days after the start of the tournament, when a few players and officials at a team hotel in Kolkata tested positive for coronavirus, the season was suspended.
After four weeks, the situation will be reassessed and the viability of resuming the league will be determined. Apart from Kenkre FC, all 13 teams in the I-League 2021-22 had played a round of matches. The teams will be kept in a bio-bubble until Friday, after which, if tested negative, they will be allowed to commute back to their homes.
In any case, the players and staff who tested positive for COVID have been separated from the rest of the players and staff. And only when they show a negative COVID report are they allowed to leave. f In the meantime, Indian Super League is in full swing in Goa. All teams work in a biosafe environment.
