The side has also signed a few exceptional players this season and features the likes of John Johnson, Manuel Lanzarote, Andre Bikey and Kalu Uche which will strengthen their defense and attack, contributing to the team’s strong core players such as Eugeneson Lyngdoh and Cavin Lobo.

In a run-up to the season opener, Star Sports – the official broadcaster of the HISL, has launched a new TVC highlighting football as the essence of West Bengal’s heartbeat and features the ‘Prince of Calcutta’ Sourav Ganguly. The TVC sees ‘Dada’ Sourav Ganguly leading the throngs of football fans in a united march to the stadium while magnifying the fact that Football daake aar Bangali ashena? Eta konodin hote pare na!

Looking forward to another successful season of HISL season, Sourav Ganguly said, “To all, this is the new film of the season, hopefully it will bring us luck and we will have a good season this year. Our record at Hero ISL is phenomenal, yes it wasn’t a great year last year but we will surely turn it around in Season 5”.
