The FSDL are inviting bids from 10 cities, which includes the Garden City.

“Yes, we have picked up the bid document,” confirmed Mandar Tamhane, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of Bengaluru FC, to Goal.

The bidding companies need to meet the criterion mentioned in the ITB document and submit by 25th May. The ISL is a franchise-based competition which came into existence in 2013 and since then has gone on to capture the imagination of the country as it became the third most attended football league in the world.

Bengaluru FC currently ply their trade in the I-League, the country's premier division.
