The Indian Super League (ISL) 2019-20 match between NorthEast United FC and Chennaiyin FC in Guwahati was on Thursday postponed indefinitely after the host city was placed under a curfew following protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.

The safety of fans, players and league staff is of paramount importance and that has led to this decision,” it added.Further information regarding the match will be conveyed in due course.”
