KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting Club will play their home matches of the 2019-20 Hero 2nd Division League at the Sailen Manna Stadium in Howrah.
The 8000 capacity stadium recently hosted two major football tournaments, the Santosh Trophy in 2018 and the Durand Cup in 2019. ATK Reserves also used Howarh Stadium as it’s home ground for the 2018-19 Hero 2nd Division League.
The Club management initially planned use Mohammedan Sporting Ground and East Bengal Ground as their home ground, however, were forced to change their decision due to logistical problem.
“We tried hard to ensure that we play the home games in Mohammedan Sporting Ground, which makes it easier for our fanbase in terms of traveling to our matches. However, owing to things that are beyond our control we have to consider an alternative venue which is not very far from Kolkata and have all the felicities to organize the match smoothly. Howrah Stadium tick all the boxes. We look forward to having Howrah Stadium full when we have our first home game,” General Manager Sk. Wasim Akram said.
