Mumbai FC win 'Best Organizer' award for I-League 2014-15

Mumbai FC & East Bengal share the 'Best Organiser' award of Hero I-League 2014-15 for organising their respective home matches in Cooperage Stadium and Salt Lake Stadium & Barasat Stadium, Kolkata respectively.

The supporters go gaga over the players' athletic prowess, but the proficiency of the management to run the show smoothly stays buried. The humongous task, which they wrap up within no-time, is undoubtedly praiseworthy. Mumbai FC, having returned back to Cooperage Stadium after a gap of 4 seasons, have been spot on and executed their home matches meticulously.

Atul Badgamia, Deputy Vice President, Mumbai FC, stated," Our top priority at Mumbai FC was to give our fans the best football viewing experience as we looked to encourage men, women, children and families to come and enjoy the beautiful game at the Cooperage Football Stadium. We humbly thank the Mumbai fans who had turned up in great numbers throughout the season.

I would like to thank everybody at the Western Indian Football Association for bringing up probably the best football stadium in India as well as for their continuous support throughout the season. And lastly, I would like to thank the All India Football Federation for recognising our efforts with this award which boosts our confidence to raise the benchmark each year and create a spectacular football viewing experience at the Cooperage."

Mr. Sunando Dhar, CEO, I-League congratulates both of the clubs on their achievement, "Organising Hero I-League without any glitch has been a humongous task which can't be successfully rounded up sans the untiring efforts from the clubs. I would like to congratulate Mumbai FC & East Bengal for their sheer proficiency and utmost expertise in hosting the Hero I-League matches. We wish them all the best for the next season and hope to see an extra effort from other clubs as well to hog the limelight."
