2023-24 IWL 2: Groups & Fixtures

The much anticipated first season of the second division of the Indian Women’s League or IWL 2 is set to begin on 22nd March 2024. The group stage of the inauguration edition will have 15 teams divided into three groups of five. Each team will play their opponents in their respective group once in a round-robin format with only the winners proceeding to the Final Round. The top two teams of the round will gain promotion to the Indian Women’s League or IWL 2024/25 season. The IWL 2 will consist of teams that did not make it to the knockouts of IWL last season, state league winners and nominated clubs. The matches of each group will be played in three different centralized venues.

Initially, 24 teams were taken into account to participate in IWL 2 but nine sides - Churchill Brothers (Goa), Kahaani FC (Gujarat), Lords FA (Kerala), CRPF (Punjab), Mata Rukmani FC (Chhatisgarh), Parikrma FC (Karnataka), Misaka United (Karnataka) and Kerala United FC (Kerala) withdrew from the league. Six of them played in the IWL last season but did not make the top four in their group to remain in the now top-flight. The reason was a lack of funds and inability to get players and AIFF asking for registration fees beyond their financial capacity.  

Here are the group and fixtures of 2023-24 IWL 2 in full:  

Group A

Sai Football Club (Assam)
