Kerala Blasters Schedule, Team News, Preview And All You Need To Know Ahead Of ISL 2020-21

With the new season of the ISL around the corner, here's a look at the Kerala Blasters schedule and how Kibu Vicuna's squad is shaping up ahead of the opener.

Kerala Blasters schedule

Kerala Blasters have failed to make it to the playoffs in the last three seasons. With a new season on the horizon, the Blasters have assembled a strong squad and will be hoping to challenge for the title under the able leadership of former Mohun Bagan coach Kibu Vicuna, who helped Bagan win the I-League by a clear 16 point-gap between them and the next closest opponent. 

Kerala Blasters begin their 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) campaign with a fixture against ATK Mohun Bagan at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim on November 20, 2020, and their passionate fan base will hope that everything goes well for their side as they look to lay their hands on the ISL trophy. The Kerala Blasters management has hired nine managers over the past six seasons which is something of a concern. Kibu Vicuna, therefore, will have his work cut out for him this season.
