Jamshedpur FC will compete in group A with FC Goa, Mohammedan Sporting, Bengaluru FC and Indian Air Force and will start its campaign against BFC.

Indian Super League side Jamshedpur FC announced its squad for the 2022 Durand Cup on Tuesday.

The tournament -- by the Indian Army on behalf of the Armed Forces -- will be played between August 16 and September 18, 2022.

Unlike Bengaluru FC and Mumbai City FC, Jamshedpur has decided to go with its reserve side, like fellow ISL sides FC Goa and Kerala Blasters. A former Atletico Madrid youth team coach, Carlos Santamarina, will be JFC’s head coach for the tournament.

JFC will compete in group A with FC Goa, Mohammedan Sporting, Bengaluru FC and Indian Air Force. The venue for Group A is Kolkata & the matches will be distributed between the Vivekananda Yuba Bharati Krirangan, Naihati Stadium, and Kishore Bharati Stadium.

The young players crave to play in competitive tournaments, and the Durand Cup could not have come at a better time for us.
