After playing their first three home games in Pune in the sixth season of the Indian Super League, Odisha FC will host their matches in the city's Kalinga Stadium from December 27. Their first game in Bhubaneswar will be against Jamshedpur FC. Owing to the delay in the completion of the up-gradation work at the Kalinga Stadium for the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup 2020, the Bhubaneswar-based ISL club had to shift their first three games to Pune.
