ISL 5: ATK To Host Bengaluru FC On October 31


Kolkata (IANS): Struggling ATK will host last year’s runners-up Bengaluru FC at the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan on October 31 instead of December 13, the Indian Super League (ISL) announced on Wednesday.

“Bengaluru FC’s next home game scheduled this month end against ATK has now been swapped as the home game for two-time champions. The change was necessitated due to Karnataka State Government’s requirement of Sree Kanteerava Stadium ground in preparation for Kannada Day,” the organisers said in a statement.

ATK will now travel to Bengaluru on December 13 to play their away game at the Kanteerava Stadium.

After losing their opening two games at home, ATK are at the foot of the table while Bengaluru are at fourth place after two matches, having won one and drawn the other.
