Mohun Bagan had won the 2019-20 I-League title after just 16 matches where they had collected 39 points, 16 more than second-placed East Bengal. The league had come to a standstill after the 16th round and later ended without completion due to ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the resulting nationwide lockdown.
