Jose Ramirez Barreto, a great from Mohun Bagan, will be in attendance.
On Sunday, December 3, the name of Mohun Bagan will be permanently inscribed in the history books of Durgapur, West Bengal, when the club’s name is inscribed on a town street. It has been stated that “Mohun Bagan Avenue” will be launched, which will be the first time a Durgapur football team has received this type of recognition.
The IQ City Hospital and Durgapur High School are located on this street, which will be renamed in honor of the venerable Kolkata club. The Mohun Bagan Durgapur Fans Club and the Durgapur Municipal Corporation’s efforts to honor the Mariners with the greatest possible tribute have made this possible.
Many well-known people will be hosting and supervising the event, including Durgapur MLA Pradip Mazumder, who was instrumental in making it possible. Additionally, club icon Jose Ramirez Barreto will participate in the inauguration ceremony, while Mohun Bagan official Debashish Dutta will also represent the team at the event.
After the formal opening at 11:30 AM, the street in Durgapur will be formally named Mohun Bagan Avenue. The Mariners have a unique bond with Durgapur, and residents in the city have previously rendered enormous assistance to them.
Durgapur was once the site of Mohun Bagan’s renowned SAIL football academy’s establishment and operation. Many well-known football players from the past and present have benefited from the academy’s platform.
Pronay Halder of Jamshedpur FC and Souvik Chakraborty of East Bengal are two players who attended the SAIL football academy and grew up in Durgapur.
In Durgapur, Mohun Bagan has a sizable fan following, including a devoted fan group that has been instrumental in getting a specific street named in the team’s honor. The Mariners’ enduring popularity in West Bengal is evidence of the unique place the team holds for its supporters.
