COVID-19: ISL match between Hyderabad FC and Jamshedpur FC postponed
Panaji, January 17, 2022
The organisers of Hero Indian Super League (ISL) today announced the postponement of the match between Hyderabad FC and Jamshedpur FC scheduled to be played this evening at Bambolim due to the rise in COVID-19 cases among members of some teams.
"The decision has been taken in consultation with the League's medical team taking into account the inability of Jamshedpur FC to field a team. The League will look to rearrange the fixture to a later date," a press release from ISL said.
"The health and safety of all personnel in various bubbles remains our priority, and the League and Clubs will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly," it added.
Yesterday, the match between Kerala Blasters FC and Mumbai City FC was postponed. However, ISL had not revealed the exact reason behind the postponement of the match, but it was believed that ISL clubs are facing problems on multiple fronts due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases.
ATK Mohun Bagan's match against Bengaluru FC was also postponed due to Covid-19 cases in the Kolkata-based franchise's bio-bubble. Earlier, their match against Odisha FC was postponed after an unnamed player reported positive for Covid-19.
