Bhubaneswar: After playing their first three home games in Pune in the sixth edition of Indian Super League (ISL), Odisha FC will host their matches at the Kalinga Stadium from December 27.

Their first game in Bhubaneswar will be against Jamshedpur FC.

Owing to the delay in the completion of the up-gradation work at the Kalinga Stadium for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2020, the Bhubaneswar-based ISL club had to shift their first three games to Pune.

Odisha FC CEO Ashish Shah has said that it has been a tough season so far for the team as they have played all games away from Bhubaneswar. We are happy to now play in front of our fans. People in the state are very passionate about sports and we are hopeful that they will come in big numbers to support us at our home; Kalinga Stadium.

OFC head coach Josep Gombau also expressed his delight by saying that it’ll be a big news for us all that from December 27 our team will play at our home.
