Mohun Bagan Day 201026-Jul, 2010
McDowell Mohun Bagan was established in the year 1889. It is the first-ever Indian Club to have won the IFA Shield defeating East Yorkshire Regiment by 2-1 on 29th July 1911 to create history and make the whole world sit up and take notice of the Indian struggle for freedom against the imperial British Raj. The Government of India released a postage stamp in 1989 to commemorate this famous victory and to honour the Club and its Immortal Eleven for the fight of an oppressed country. This is the only postage stamp in India based on a Club. The Club was also declared as the "National Soccer Club of India".
29th July is a red letter Day in Indian History and a great day for the Club as well and is celebrated as Mohun Bagan Day each year. This year is considered very significant since it is the 100th Year of Celebration of the Great Victory. To commemorate this great victory, McDowell Mohun Bagan would organize three exhibition matches at our Club Grounds from 1:30 pm onwards.
The matches would be as follows:
1Â· Match between Mohun Bagan Junior Team & Mona Guin Memorial Football Camp : 1:30 to 2:15 pm (Please note that Late Mona Guin was an ex-captain of our McDowell Mohun Bagan and this is his birth centenary year)
2Â· Match between Ex-players of our Club: 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
3Â· Match between Media XI and Artistes XI: 3:45 - 4:30 pm
