Jamshedpur (Jharkhand) [India], October 17 (ANI): Jamshedpur FC is set to play five pre-season friendlies in a bid to prepare for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL).
The squad will be battling out the friendlies against four clubs starting from October 27.
The team began its pre-season on October 10 with Head Coach, Owen Coyle, determined to have the players undergo a six-week pre-season.
The Gaffer wants the players to find themselves in good rhythm, fitness, and camaraderie before they begin their ISL journey.
