Delhi Dynamos is likely to be rebranded as 'Odisha FC' following their decision to shift base to Bhubaneswar from Delhi, Goal has learnt. 

As reported earlier, the two-time ISL semi-finalists had decided to shift to Bhubaneswar primarily due to economic reasons as the club feels that the cost of operations can be lowered with a move.

The club did look for alternative venues in Delhi but they could only find an agreement with the Government of Odisha and hence, had to also come up with a new name for the club.

The Delhi Dynamos management will hope that a change in venue will also change the club's sagging fortunes in the past couple of seasons.

The Kalinga Stadium, where the Lions will play their homes games, has been a popular venue with the All India Football Federation (AIFF)  and has hosted several events of Indian football, including the Super Cup and the Indian Women's League.
