Indian Super League organizers Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) introduced the ISL League Winners Shield during the 2019-20 season. 

The ISL League Winners Shield list currently features three teams - Jamshedpur FC, Mumbai City FC and FC Goa.

The ISL ‘League Winners Shield’ is awarded to the Indian Super League club topping the league stage of Indian football’s top flight. Along with the award, the winning club also gets a cash prize of INR 50 Lakh.

More pertinently, the League winners directly qualify for the group stage of the AFC Champions League.

During the ISL 2019-20 season, FC Goa became the first Indian club to participate in the AFC Champions League after the Gaurs topped the league stage with 39 points from 18 matches.

The following season, Mumbai City FC became the first club to win both the ISL League Winners Shield and the ISL title in the same edition. 

After the Islanders topped the league phase with 40 points from 20 matches, they defeated ATK Mohun Bagan 2-1 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa to clinch the ISL 2020-21 title.

Meanwhile, Jamshedpur FC are the current ISL League Winners Shield holders. The Red Miners lifted the Shield after finishing on the top of the ISL 2021-22 standings with 43 points from 20 games.
