10 Top Scorers of Indian Super League (Season-1)
The Indian Super League is a professional football league in India. The league is one of the top-tier football leagues in India, the other being the I-League. It features eight franchise teams from all around India. The league runs from October to December, with a finals series determining the champion.
The Indian Super League was founded in 2013 in an effort to make football a top sport in India and to make Indian football a major player worldwide. The league operates along the lines of the Twenty20 cricket Indian Premier League, and Major League Soccer of the United States. Unlike the majority of football leagues around the world, the ISL does not use the promotion and relegation system. Instead, it uses a franchise system in which eight teams were created to participate in the league.
The inaugural season of the league started on Sunday, October 12, 2014, and concluded on Saturday, December 20, 2014. Atlético de Kolkata won the final by beating Kerala Blasters to win the inaugural title of the league.

In most of the matches attendance of the spectators was more than 80% of the total capacity of the stadium. Media and various sports channels gave very good coverage to it.
