"Indian Super League (ISL) announces the postponement of the match between ATK Mohun Bagan and Bengaluru FC scheduled to be played on Saturday, January 15, 2022, at PJN Stadium, Fatorda," ISL said in a statement.

"Each match is assessed on a number of factors including the ability of the clubs to field a team; the severity of Covid-19 breakout at the club(s); and the ability of the club personnel to safely prepare for and play the match," it added.

The organizers said the health and safety of all personnel in various bubbles remains their priority, and the League and Clubs will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly.

ATKMB are fifth on the points table with 15 in their bag but they have played only nine matches so far.
