Jamshedpur Football Club is an Indian professional football club based in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. The club competes as a member of the Indian Super League, one of the top leagues of Indian football, and started in the 2017-18 season. The club was established on 12 June 2017 when Tata Steel won the bidding rights for one of two expansion spots in the Indian Super League. The club is owned by Tata Steel, a subsidiary of the Tata Group.
Jamshedpur FC were one of two teams to make their ISL debut in the 2017-18 season and like their counterparts Bengaluru FC, they gave a fabulous account of themselves. A 5th placed finish with more wins than losses was an admirable return for a side competing with clubs with 3 year of ISL experience. With 2017-18 manager Steve Coppell moving to ATK, the Steel City side have roped in ex-Atletico Madrid manager Cesar Ferrando to lead the side and target a semi-final spot in the season to come. This is a side with the backing of one of India's most ardent football behemoths in Tata, and with the right signings and mindset ahead of the new season, are liable to surprise a few of the more established sides in the tournament. Their journey is one worth following!
