Noted Kolkata businessman Swapan Sadhan (Tutu) Bose has been named president of Mohun Bagan club, a position which lay vacant after eminent lawyer Gitanath Ganguly’s demise.
“The club lost its president Ganguly in December 2019 and subsequently the executive committee members in today’s meeting unanimously decided to select Swapan Sadhan Bose as the new president of the club,” the Mariners stated in a Press release.
Consequently, there was a re-shuffle in the Mohun Bagan executive committee as Bose’s son, Srinjoy Bose, now was made the general secretary, while Satyajit Chatterjee, who was treasurer, became the assistant general secretary.
Uttam Saha, previously ground secretary, will now be the treasurer, while Mahesh Tekriwal and Sandipan Banerjee were elected unopposed as ground secretary and hockey secretary respectively.
Mohun Bagan have made a landmark move announcing their merger with ATK from June, paving the way for the oldest football club of the country to compete in the top tier Indian Super League from next season.
In a landmark development to the oldest surviving football club in India, Indian Super League club ATK last week had announced a majority 80% stake acquisition in Mohun Bagan. Two clubs will play the ISL as a joint entity ATK-Mohun Bagan from the next season.
