FC Goa is a professional football club based in Goa, India. The club was founded in 2014 and currently competes in the Indian Super League (ISL), the top tier of Indian football. The club has quickly become a force to be reckoned with, making it to the playoffs in every season since its inception.


FC Goa was founded in 2014 by the Goan Football Club Pvt Ltd. The club made an impressive debut in the 2014 ISL season, finishing runners-up to Atletico de Kolkata. In the following season, they made it to the semi-finals before losing to eventual champions Chennaiyin FC. In the 2018-19 season, FC Goa played some of the most attractive football in the league and topped the league stage before losing in the final to Bengaluru FC. The following season, they once again topped the league stage before losing to Chennaiyin FC in the semi-finals.


Despite making it to the playoffs in every season, FC Goa has only managed to win one trophy in its short history, the 2019-20 Indian Super League League Winners Shield. The club has also finished runners-up twice in the ISL, in the 2014 and 2018-19 seasons.


As a privately-owned club, its revenue streams include sponsorships, ticket sales, merchandise sales, and broadcasting rights. The club’s major sponsors include Kingfisher, BKT Tires, and Deltin Group. FC Goa’s home ground is the Fatorda Stadium in Margao, Goa, with a seating capacity of 19,000. The club has a strong fan base in Goa, which is known for its passionate football supporters.


They have developed a strong rivalry with two other clubs in the ISL – Mumbai City FC and Chennaiyin FC. The rivalry with Mumbai City FC, also known as the “Maha-Goa Derby,” stems from the historical and cultural ties between the two cities. The rivalry with Chennaiyin FC has been fueled by several high-stakes matches, including two semi-final clashes.


FC Goa has quickly become a prominent club in Indian football since its inception in 2014. With a talented squad and a passionate fan base, the club looks set to continue its success in the years to come.
