Indian Super League
Interesting I reckon

From the BBC:

unch of the high-profile Indian Super League (ISL) next month, and the country hosting the Fifa U-17 World Cup in 2017.

The ISL has taken three years to get off the ground, and those involved at all levels of India's football industry hope it will help loosen cricket's stranglehold on the sporting public.

The new 10-week league, featuring eight clubs, kicks off in one of the world's largest untapped football markets on 12 October.

Similar to the route taken by the NASL in the USA in the 1970s, the league will initially be packed with ageing stars from Europe, with reported signings including David James, Robert Pires, Allesandro del Piero, Freddie Ljungberg, Nicolas Anelka, and David Trezeguet.

Who? Laugh
Just another money league for aging players of dubious quality!!! You used to see older players dropping a division but staying in England, now they go to India, China, Middle East and to a lesser extent the US. Having said that I can't see either of these players putting too many bums on seats!!
