Sachin Tendulkar feels that Indian Super League has begun on the right note and the "fantastic start" on Sunday would be a huge boost towards changing the face of the game in the country.

Tendulkar is one of the co-owners of the ISL franchise Kerala Blasters FC which is being led by former England goalkeeper David James.

"It (ISL) is a new beginning. Everyone is looking for it. It had a fantastic start yesterday (Sunday). The teams showed tremendous spirit and the crowd was very supportive," Tendulkar, who is in Guwahati to support his team Kerala Blasters said on Monday.

Tendulkar said that ISL will change the face of Indian football.

"It (ISL) is a big moment for Indian football. This initiative is going to change Indian football. I feel nice to be a part of it. I think the entire nation needs to be behind this."
