The Indian Super League has announced the postponement of Saturday’s game between ATK Mohun Bagan and Bengaluru FC due to more COVID-19 cases.
“Each match is assessed on a number of factors including the ability of the clubs to field a team; the severity of Covid-19 breakout at the club(s); and the ability of the club personnel to safely prepare for and play the match,” the league said in a statement.
ATKMB’s match against Odisha FC last Saturday was also postponed after a player from the Kolkata-based team tested positive for COVID-19.
According to a Times of India report, five players from the ATKMB camp have been tested positive and players have remained in isolation for the last six days.
The ISL is being held behind closed doors, across three stadiums in Goa owing to the pandemic.
