Report About Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium

The Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, also known as Fatorda Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium located in Margao, Goa, India. It has a seating capacity of 19,000, with an additional 1,000 seats in reserve. The stadium has hosted 9 ODIs in cricket and various football tournaments, including multiple Indian Super League finals, I-League matches, I-League 2 matches, AFC Cup, and AFC Champions League games. Currently, it serves as the home stadium of FC Goa.

Established in 1989, the venue was built in a record six months under the supervision of then Sports Minister Monte (D’) Cruz. Originally designed as a football-only stadium, it was later redeveloped to include cricket within a year. The first cricket One Day International (ODI) was played between Australia and Sri Lanka in the Nehru Cup on October 25, 1989.

The stadium is owned and operated by the Sports Authority of Goa. During the 2020–21 Indian Super League season, it was utilized as one of the centralized home grounds due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The stadium complex provides two levels of fan seating, along with a VIP area. Facilities include arena lighting, natural turf, broadcast room, TV studio, player dressing rooms, match delegates area, doping control rooms, medical rooms for players and spectators, VIP lounge, corporate boxes, media tribune and media working stations, press conference area, mixed zone area, CCTV cameras, a swimming pool, multipurpose gymnasium, and parking facilities.

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.
