Chennaiyin skipper Anirudh Thapa: The 2022–23 Indian Super League season will be the ninth season of the competition. The league kicks off on 7 October 2022 and will run until March 2023.
This season marks the return of fans across stadiums after a gap of two years. The traditional home and away format will return across 11 cities across India.
Chennaiyin skipper, Anirudh Thapa is excited about the return of fans. He is looking forward to the return of magical nights at the Marina Arena.
“I think the fans are excited and so are we. They will be back after two years. We missed them and it will be great to meet them and entertain them. Having fans will create an amazing atmosphere in this season’s ISL for sure,” said Chennaiyin skipper Anirudh Thapa.
“Last two years have been tough for us. I can recall the packed stands in Chennai with the people of the city behind us in each and every match. There have been special nights at the Marina Arena and I am looking forward to experiencing them back once again.
“You know the matches in Bengaluru, Kochi, and Kolkata will be amazing as well because you have a great turnout in these centres. I am most excited to play the four teams away from home as well,
“Weekly matches will be nice for both players and fans and will give ample time in between matches so everyone can enjoy better.”
