Indian Super League (ISL) side Jamshedpur FC are set to begin their pre-season training on October 1, Goal has learnt. Steve Coppel and his men are also expected to go on a pre-season tour to Thailand a week later, where they would face clubs from the Thai League.
The Tata Steel-owned club, along with Bengaluru FC, are new entrants in the upcoming edition of the ISL and the Jamshedpur-based club has had to build a team from scratch.
Former Kerala Blasters coach Steve Coppel had taken over reins at the club in mid-July and has managed to bring in forward Kervens Belfort who previously played for him at Blasters.
The likes of Tiri, Memo, Kervens Belfort, Sameehg Doutie and former Premier League defender Andre Bikey are set to feature for the newly launched club in this season's Indian Super League.
Jamshedpur FC will play their home matches at JRD Tata Sports Complex, which is being readied in time for the fourth ISL season set to kick-off in November.
