Kingfisher East Bengal Club to pick up ISL ‘Invitation to Bid’ Papers
Kingfisher East Bengal, after a series of drama and discussions, is all set to pick up the “Invitation to Bid” documents from the IMG-R. Though, the chance of playing in the ISL is yet to be decided. But it is learnt that the present sponsors of East Bengal insisted the Red & Gold club officials to at least pick up the form of “invitation to bid”. Later East Bengal official Debabrata Sarkar too confirmed that they are taking the first initiative by collecting the form.
East Bengal official Debabrata Sarkar said, “Yes, East Bengal to pick up ISL ‘Invitation to Bid’ documents. We have had discussions and we have decided to pick up the form.” He added, “We also had a word with Mohun Bagan and will send a copy of the document to go through the terms and conditions. Then we shall have a further discussion on that.”
Now it is to see in which direction the situation proceeds. The officials who were stubborn on their claims are now collecting the form to bid for the ISL and that certainly means that slowly the ice is melting.
