The Indian Football Association has released an updated fixtures list for the 117th IFA Shield which will kick-off on March 3, but the date of the final continues to be open due to continental obligations of East Bengal Club and if they make it to the shield semifinals and/or final, then only will those matches be finalised with the final then likely on March 19.

Also Mumbai FC had to opt out of the tournament due to unavoidable circumstances and their place has been taken by another I-League side in United Sikkim FC.
