October 15, 2020 Kolkata – The much awaited Hero I-League Trophy presentation ceremony would be held on Sunday, October 18, 2020, 11.00 AM onwards at Hyatt Regency Hotel, Kolkata. Shri Aroop Biswas, Hon’ble Minister of PWD, Youth Services and Sports have given his valued consent to be the Chief Guest of the event. Mr. Sunando Dhar, CEO, I-League would be present on behalf of the All India Football Federation on the day.
The Trophy would be handed over to players and coaches who are available in Kolkata in presence of our Club President Shri Swapan Sadhan Bose and the entire Executive Committee members. The event would start off with the champion song followed by an audio-visual of the I-League journey for 2019-20 season.
Since, most of the coaches and players will not be able to join the program physically due to the current pandemic scenario and commitments with their respective teams, we have organised to take them on a live Zoom call so they can be part of the event virtually and enjoy the memorable moment and feel a part of the same. As informed earlier that due to stringent guidelines and protocols laid down by the Central and State Government we had to shift the event to a closed confined place to adhere to the covid protocol guidelines. But considering the emotions of our millions of supporters we would be streaming the entire ceremony live on our social media handles for them to relish the moment they all have been waiting for.
Post the presentation ceremony a procession is organised from Hotel Hyatt Regency to Mohun Bagan Athletic Club. The coveted trophy would be put into a glass cascade in an open Jeep to bring it to the club. The procession will commence from Hotel Hyatt Regency and shall touch import points as per the route map in the image
