"It's a momentous day for all of us today as I stand along with the world's footballing legends to unveil the pride of Indian Super League. As these role models have inspired hundreds of thousands of players worldwide, I am sure the ISL trophy will also stand as a symbol of aspiration for many youngsters in an emergent India," said Nita. 
"The Indian Super League trophy is detailed to perfection by Indian artisans who were trained in London, thus exemplifying the genius of Indian artistry and world-class craftsmanship. Its 'made in India' design embodies our love and passion for this beautiful game and it equally represents our 'made for world' aspirations," she added.

With Hero Indian Super League well placed to fuel the birth of a footballing nation, I am confident that this will become one of the most coveted trophies in Indian football in the years ahead."
