The newest entrants , Odisha FC will not play their first home game in Bhubaneshwar. The Kalinga stadium which is owned by the Government of Odisha is currently undergoing an upgrade to meet the Fifa standards and the work is still under progress. Owing to the persistent rains in Bhubaneshwar the renovation got delayed and thus Odisha FC were forced to play at some other venue.

Delhi, Ahmedabad and Pune were the shortlisted venues for hosting the first three home games. The management might have finalized Pune owing to the fact that it has previously hosted an ISL team and also it has comparatively a better turnout than Delhi.

Shree Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi has been the home ground for many clubs based in Pune. No club/ franchise has made its presence felt in Pune though. FC Pune city, DSK Shivajians, Kalyani Bharat Fc,Pune FC are some of the clubs who used to play in Pune but are currently defunct for some or the other reason.

24 November: Odisha FC vs ATK
