The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda will host the ISL 2020-21 final in consecutive seasons and for a record third time on Saturday, March 13, 2021.
The first-leg semi-finals will be held on Friday, March 5, and Saturday, March 6. The return legs are scheduled on Monday, March 8, and Tuesday, March 9. The semi-finals will be played across two venues: the GMC Stadium, Bambolim and the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda, before the latter also hosts the summit clash.
