ISL officially welcomes newly promoted Punjab FC

The Indian Super League today announced Punjab FC as the latest entrant to the top tier league in Indian football from the upcoming 2023-24 season onwards.

The Indian Super League (ISL) 2023-24 will witness 12 teams in action after the addition of Punjab FC was confirmed, on Wednesday. Punjab FC became the first club to be promoted into ISL, owing to their impressive title-winning 2022-23 I-League campaign.

Staikos Vergetis’ team won the I-League with a game to spare and topped the standings with 52 points from 22 games. The I-League title returned to Punjab for the first time in five years, with Minerva previously having won it during the 2017-18 season. 

Indian Super League Spokesperson said, “We are delighted to welcome Punjab FC to the Indian Super League family. Punjab FC’s promotion to ISL will further expedite the growing fan affinity and footprint of the game in India. It brings a new wave of enthusiasm, talent and determination into the league, representing the passionate football fans from Punjab. As ISL celebrates its 10th year this season, the league remains committed to delivering on its promise of fostering an inclusive and strong league ecosystem aimed at taking Indian football to new heights.”

They will be looking to emulate the success of JCT Football Club, the most successful team from the state and one of the historic teams in Indian football. JCT won almost every championship they competed in, including the inaugural National Football Team. Indian players that made a name for themselves at JCT later represented the Indian national team.

Punjab’s contribution to Indian football is immense, and Punjab FC hopes to further add to that.
