The supporters of the visiting teams for Mumbai City Football Club’s home matches will now have a dedicated section in the galleries.
Mumbai City Football Club has become the first team in the history of the Hero Indian Super League to create a dedicated section for away fans during its home matches at the Mumbai Football Arena.
In an effort to accommodate the supporters of the away teams who play at Mumbai Football Arena, this facility will be available to fans starting Sunday, December 17 in The Islanders’ next league fixture against ATK.
Commenting on this initiative, Mumbai City FC co-owner Ranbir Kapoor said, “I am really glad that we could be the first team in the ISL to have taken this progressive step towards supporting the fan culture in our country. It will motivate the away team supporters to flock to our Arena in numbers to watch their favourite teams live in action. We believe this move will create a great atmosphere in the stadium and I am quite sure the fans will definitely appreciate our latest effort to promote football and enhance the fan experience in our home stadium.”
“We are delighted to have a special section for the visiting team’s fans,” said Mumbai City FC’s CEO Indranil Das Blah. “It will not only bring a great atmosphere in the stands with both teams getting cheered on but will also ensure the safety and comfort of the away fans, allowing them to have a great, hassle-free match day experience at the Mumbai Football Arena,” he added.
The dedicated section for all away supporters will be Stand 4B which will be accessible via the main gate 1 and the inner gate 8. A total of 200 seats have been allocated to the away supporters’ section and the tickets for this section are available on BookMyShow under a special category.
