The All India Football Federation (AIFF) has named its development side Indian Arrows, going back to the old moniker it used for its previous youth team that was disbanded in 2013.
A bit of focus will be on the side that will comprise the best talent from the team that competed in the FIFA U-17 World Cup and the Under-19 team.
The move, which was approved by AIFF's technical committee, is on the lines of the Pailan Indian Arrows project which was disbanded four years ago.
The team's home ground could be either Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium or Ambedkar Stadium.
While Mohun Bagan will be in action on the opening day at the Guru Nanak Stadium, their traditional rivals East Bengal will begin their campaign on Nov 28 against defending champions Aizawl FC.
Indian Arrows will play their first match against Chennai City FC and then take on Minerva Punjab FC, but the dates and and venues for the development side's matches have not been finalised yet owing to the players' international commitments.
Meanwhile, former India captain Bhaichung Bhutia strongly backed the I-league, saying it "deserves" much better.
"Both league (I-League and ISL) should survive and do well but not by killing each other," he wrote on his twitter handle.
