3) No Mohun Bagan and East Bengal in I-League 2020/21

Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan and East Bengal will not be a part of I-League 2020/21 after having left the league to participate in the Indian Super League (ISL). Mohun Bagan merged with former ISL champions ATK to form ATK Mohun Bagan whereas East Bengal also joined the Indian top-tier league.

With two of the biggest and most consistent teams not playing in the I-League this season, all the other teams have an equal chance of winning the trophy as they all look evenly matched on paper.

Sudeva Delhi FC will make their debut in the upcoming edition of the I-League. The club consists of only Indian players, becoming the second team after Indian Arrows to sport only Indian players in their ranks.
