Chennaiyin FC to play their AFC Cup group matches in Ahmedabad!

Two-time Indian Super League champions Chennaiyin FC will be playing the home fixtures of their 2019 AFC Cup group stage at The Arena by TransStadia in Ahmedabad.

Chennaiyin FC played the home leg of their two-legged qualifying playoff against Colombo FC in Ahmedabad as playing a Sri Lankan opponent in Tamil Nadu was not politically conducive.

The club had requested for permission from SDAT (Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu) to host the group stage matches in Chennai. But by the time the approvals were received from SDAT, significant financial commitments were made by the club towards The Arena by TransStadia and in order to fulfill those obligations the club will play the home games of the group stage in Ahmedabad.

Chennai sadly loses the chance to watch continental club football, which is Ahmedabad’s gain.
