Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) chairperson Nita Ambani welcomed the inclusion of East Bengal into the Indian Super League (ISL) on Sunday.
The Red and Golds join their arch rivals Mohun Bagan, who merged with ATK, in the country's top division. Ambani felt that the entry of both the Kolkata giants in the ISL is a monumental development for the Indian football ecosystem at large.
“It is such a happy and proud moment for ISL as we welcome East Bengal FC and their millions of fans into the League. The inclusion of both legacy clubs, i.e. East Bengal and Mohun Bagan (now ATK Mohun Bagan) opens limitless possibilities for Indian football, especially for talent development in the state," she said.
