Mumbai FC celebrates the completion of eight years!
Established on 27th June 2007, Mumbai FC was launched amidst great fanfare. The club gave city's young football aspirants hope of making it to the Elite level of football. In its first year itself, Mumbai clinched promotion to the I-League (India's top tier competition) by winning the 2nd Division in 2008. Since then the club has enjoyed a consistent run in the I-League and is one of the three teams (others being East Bengal & Mohun Bagan) to have not got relegated/excluded even once since 2008.
June 2015 marks the club completing eight years since its establishment.
"We are proud to have completed eight years in the elite level. It's important for us especially since we are the only I-League club in the city while most other cities have at least 2-3 clubs from their city. Mumbai FC would like to thank all the fans and everyone who has been involved with the club since its inception in 2008," said Mumbai FC Deputy Vice-President Atul Badgamia.
