Rooter has achieved growth and success in such a short span of time and we are glad that their offerings will help us take care of fan engagement, which is one of the most vital aspects of every season.”

ISL already became the fourth most viewed football league in the world in its first season, after the big three of EPL, Bundesliga and La LIga.

With this year being its fourth, the ISL has managed to include two more teams-Jamshedpur FC and Bengaluru FC- in its ambit, intensifying the competition further.
