Mohun Bagan gets a sponsor on board

KOLKATA: Football giants Mohun Bagan have announced a one-year sponsorship deal with home-grown furniture major Nilkamal Limited.

“We are delighted to be working with Nilkamal. The two organisations will be committed to promote the game of football throughout the entire country,” club director Srinjoy Bose said.

While the nature of the sponsorship was not revealed, Sportskeeda reports that the Kolkata giants have roped in Nilkamal as their new co-sponsors for the upcoming football season for a sum of Rs20 million. The Mariners are though still without a primary sponsor and Nilkamal will only find its name at the back of the shirt.

It is worth noting that Mohun Bagan has been operating without a lead sponsor for the last three years after liquor major McDowell's pulled the plug. 

Ahead of the I-League season starting in November, this development should be a shot in the arm for the green and maroon brigade.
