Kochi: The BCCI ‘President-elect’ Sourav Ganguly will be present for the inauguration of the sixth season of Indian Super League Football in Kerala on October 20.
Although Ganguly was keen to go and spend time with the Indian players as they gear up to play the third and final Test against South Africa in Ranchi from October 19, he had to cancel the plan to be present for the inauguration of this edition of the Indian Super League.
“Wanted to go to Ranchi, but won’t get time as I have to inaugurate this edition of the Indian Super League as I’m now the face of ISL and shot for them. So, I will be attending the opening ceremony in Kerala,” Ganguly said.
The inauguration will be held at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Kochi.
The first match is between Kerala Blasters and ATK.
Ganguly will be heading to Mumbai from Kochi as he will officially take over as the new BCCI chief at the board headquarter on October 23.
