More teams in the Knockout stages

The biggest announcement for the new ISL 2022-23 season was a change in the total number of teams participating in the knockout stages of the match. Last season, a few teams missed their chances to make the playoffs by just 1-2 points. Therefore, in an attempt to make the competition more exciting and entertaining, a total of 6 teams participate in the knockout rounds.

Previously, only the top 4 teams participated in the knockout, but from this season, the top 6 teams will compete against each other to fight their way into the finals.

Change in format of Knockout stages

With more teams participating in the knockout stages, the ISL decided to implement a new format for the knockout stages. Earlier, the top 4 teams battled each other in two semi-final matches and the winners then advanced to the final. But from this season onwards there will be two Eliminators followed by 2 semi-finals.

The top 2 teams from the group stage go directly to the semi-finals. The teams placed 3rd to 6th will play 2 eliminators against each other and the winners will advance to the semi-finals. The semi-finals are played in a home and away format.

Return of home and away matches

After a brief period of 2 years marred by Covid-19 protocols, the home and away matches are back in this season’s ISL. In the last two seasons, the ISL hosted all the matches in Goa at three different venues. But now that Covid is no longer a major threat, the group stage along with the semi-finals will now see the home and away games. Each team in the group stage must face the other team twice, one at their home ground and the other in the away game.

No bio-bubble

Season 9 of the Indian Super League (ISL 2022-23) will see the 11 teams no longer segregated. Players will be able to mingle with each other as Covid-19 norms ease. Unlike the previous two seasons, this season will see the bio bubble not appear.
