Preview:

The 5th season of the Tamil Nadu Premier League is all set to commence from 19th July. The surge of the COVID-19 pandemic did not allow the staging of the tournament last year. Lyca Kovai Kings will battle it out against Salem Spartans in the inaugural match of the 2021 edition.

In the last edition, Lyca Kovai Kings finished in the fifth position on the points table and failed to make it to the playoffs. On the other hand, Tuti Patriots were rebranded as Salem Spartans. They had finished just below the Kings in the last season. Heading into this first game, both the teams would be keen to start the tournament on a winning note.
