ISL 2023-24: Mohun Bagan Super Giants to have new stand names ahead of opening match against Punjab


Kolkata: With only three days to go, the 10th season of the Indian Super League is all set to start at Kochi between Bengaluru FC and Kerala Blasters. The clubs have started to sell their tickets for the fans, be it home venue or away match. Emami East Bengal, Kerala Blasters, Mumbai City FC and others have started selling tickets to the fans.

However, this time the defending champions Mohun Bagan Super Giants are going to have changed names for the stands at Vivekanand Yuva Bharati Krirangan situated in Salt Lake, Kolkata. Changing the club name from ATK Mohun Bagan to Mohun Bagan Super Giants, RPSG director Sanjeev Goenka seems to have some different calculations.

Interestingly, the history and dignity of the club, Mohun Bagan has been kept intact and made into action by the club management. Therefore, the “B2” stand set up for them at Yuva Bharati has been specially named as the “1889 Stand”. It should be noted that Mohun Bagan Club was established at Maidan at this time. Such a decision is made by the management keeping that history in mind.

But this is not the only stand, their “C2” stand has also been renamed to “1911 Stand”. In the year 1911, Mohun Bagan became the first Indian football club to win the Shield, defeating the British with bare feet.

Keeping all the things aside the main concern for the fans is the availability of the tickets and from when they will be able to get them. Though the online tickets has been started, offline ticket collection remains the major concern.

New information has come up with that. According to special sources, offline tickets for the first match will be given from 19th to 22nd at the green-maroon tent in Maida. Then for other matches and one or two days before the match, the tickets will be available at the club tent.
