Muddy grounds, crowded galleries, impressive slogans; these three frames formed the larger canvas called the Calcutta Football League (CFL) 2017. Last season of the CFL was unique in its own way as it witnessed unprecedented levels of attendance, with both men and women attending football matches.
For this reason, the Indian Football Association (IFA), has preponed the match kick-off time to 4:30 PM, keeping in mind the plight of fans who travel from far-flung districts.
Mohun Bagan has played well in their pre-season games with Henry Kisekka finding the net in almost all the matches barring one.
East Bengal, on the other hand, has also won all their pre-season practice matches and are raring to complete a triple hat-trick of successive CFL crowns.
East Bengal’s first game in the 2018 Calcutta Football League (CFL) against Tollygunge Agragami was abandoned on Friday due to incessant rainfall. Only the first 45 minutes of the match was played in which both the team scored a goal each.
The Indian Football Association (IFA) is yet to take a decision whether the points are to be split or a re-match is required.
Mohun Bagan’s first game was filled with unbelievable misses, out-of-the-world saves and rains come to a conclusion with the Mariners having the last laugh. Mohun Bagan goes second in the table with this win behind Rainbow AC.
That’s all for today. Stay tuned to know how the league progresses.
