ISL Winners List – ISL Winners List of All Season

The Indian Super League (ISL) is a professional football league in India, founded in 2013 with the aim of developing the sport in the country and making it more popular among its vast population. Managed by the Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL), the ISL has rapidly grown to become one of the top football leagues in Asia.

The league follows a franchise model similar to that of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in cricket. Initially, there were eight teams, but this has expanded over the years to include more teams from different regions, enhancing the league’s appeal and competitive nature.

The ISL season runs from October to March, featuring a regular season where each team plays home and away matches. The top teams then advance to the playoffs, culminating in a final to determine the champion. 

Unlike many traditional football leagues around the world, the ISL does not have a system of promotion and relegation, though discussions about integrating this feature have been ongoing.
