East Bengal To Play In ISL; Mamata Banerjee Plays Troubleshooter Again

Kolkata: Now if you are an East Bengal fan, it’s time to rejoice as West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee has once again used her good office to get the sponsors and club officials under one roof for a rapprochement. And it means the dark clouds over the club’s ISL participation are gone with the wind.

East Bengal would compete in the upcoming edition of the ISL, confirmed club officials on Wednesday following the CM’s mediation between Shree Cement and club officials on Wednesday. The club is ready to sign the final agreement with Shree Cement after an agreement was reached upon between the warring groups.

Subhash Jajoo, the Chief Financial Officer of Shree Cement said, “We want to play. There were some differences so we could not sign the agreement. But since you (Mamata Banerjee) have requested, we have decided that we will participate in ISL.”

“Mamata Banerjee has helped us (East Bengal) to play in ISL this season. I also thank Sree Cement for their co-operation,” Debabrata Sarkar, senior club official stated after the meeting.

Both East Bengal and Shree Cement were involved in a deadlock over signing the final agreement since October, last year. The cement giants had reportedly decided to snap ties with East Bengal after the club didn’t sign the final draft of the agreement sent to them on August 16. Banerjee too had condemned Shree Cement pulling out of the agreement, stating that it was unacceptable.

Now that the differences are a thing of the past, Shree Cement would reportedly shift its focus on building the team ahead of the ISL, starting in November 2021.
