Gokulam Kerala is the first Kerala side to win the I-League.
Churchill Brothers FC Goa were simultaneously playing against RoundGlass Punjab FC and had to win their game and hope for a draw in Gokulam Kerala vs TRAU.
Churchill managed to get an edgy 3-2 win over Punjab but with Gokulam beating TRAU, they fell short of getting the title as they were beaten with a better head-to-head record.
This is Gokulam Kerala’s first I-League title and the league has now got a different winner for the sixth straight season.
