As part of a pre-season competition for the fresh season, there will be no retrieval of the Super Cup, knock out rivalry between the ISL and I-League clubs.

Previously in last season, it was seen in Indian football that the Indian Super League, I league and I League Qualifiers brought the spot under stringent limitations. However, it is advised by the organisers that every individual on their touring registration must be fully vaccinated.

“The Super Cup can’t be held before in view of the current situation,” Kushal Das said and expanded further that it will be very tough to organize a pre-season competition. The last two versions of the tournament Super Cup were suspended because of schedule disputes and the global pandemic condition.
