Report About Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan Stadium 

The Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan (VYBK), commonly known as the Salt Lake Stadium, is an all-seater multi-purpose stadium located in Salt Lake City, Kolkata. It is named after Swami Vivekananda, a key figure in the introduction of the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to the Western world.

Key Facts about the Stadium:

  • History: The stadium was established in 1984 to address the need for a larger venue, as the Maidan area club grounds with capacities of around 20,000 were proving too small for the significant crowds on matchdays. It was inaugurated by Sri Jyoti Basu, Chief Minister, Govt. of West Bengal, on January 25, 1984.
  • Capacity: The stadium currently has a capacity of 68,000 spectators. Prior to renovations in 2011, it had a seating capacity of 120,000. For the 2017 U-17 World Cup, security measures limited the stadium to 66,687 viewers.
  • Record Attendance: The stadium’s record attendance was set in 1997 when 134,000 spectators watched the Federation Cup semifinal between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan.
  • Surface: The stadium switched back to natural grass from artificial turf as part of the preparations for hosting the U-17 World Cup.
  • Tenants: The stadium serves as the home ground for multiple football clubs, most notably Mohun Bagan, East Bengal, and Mohammedan.
  • Events: The stadium hosted the final match of the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, along with other matches of the tournament.
  • Location: The stadium is situated at Bidhannagar, Kolkata.
  • Architects: The stadium was designed by M. S. Ballardie, Thompson & Matthews Pvt. Ltd., and H. K. Sen & Associates.

About Indian Super League (ISL)

The Indian Super League (ISL) is the men’s highest level of the Indian football league system. It was founded on 21 October 2013 with the aim of growing the sport of football in India and increasing its exposure in the country. The league is co-promoted by Reliance, Star India, and supported by the All India Football Federation (AIFF).

The ISL began play in October 2014 with eight teams. During its first three seasons, the competition operated without official recognition from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), which is the governing body for the sport in Asia. It was structured along the same lines as the Indian Premier League, the country’s premier Twenty20 franchise-based cricket competition. Each season lasted just three months, from October to December, and matches were held daily.

However, before the 2017–18 season, the league expanded to ten teams, extended its schedule to six months, and earned recognition from the AFC. The season runs from September to March and includes a 22-round regular season followed by playoffs involving the top six teams, culminating with the ISL Final to determine the champions. At the end of the regular season, the team with the most points is declared the premiers and presented with the League Winners’ Shield.

Currently, the league comprises 12 clubs. ISL clubs gain qualification to the Asian continental club competitions; regular-season premiers qualify directly for the subsequent season’s AFC Cup group stage. The league has received unmatched visibility in a short span of time and is speculated to be one of the top-tier leagues in India after the I-League.
