Mohun Bagan Day 201225-Jul, 2012
29th July was and will always be an iconic day for McDowell Mohun Bagan and its countless supporters. Decades ago, in the year 1911, it was on this eventful day that an Indian football team changed the course of history by defeating a British club - East Yorkshire Regiment - to lift the IFA Shield. 1911 will always be known as the year of the 'Egaro' - the eleven barefooted victors who led McDowell Mohun Bagan right into the record books of Indian football.
As a mark of tribute, 29th July is celebrated as MB Day every year where the heroic eleven of 1911, as well as the other great icons of McDowell Mohun Bagan, are felicitated and the city of Kolkata revels in the euphoria with pomp and glory. The football greats are bestowed upon with the Mohun Bagan Ratna - a mark of respect which recognizes and lauds their indispensable contribution to the club over the years.
Due to repair of the members gallery, no program has been scheduled in the Mohun Bagan ground this year on Mohun Bagan Day. Instead, it will be held at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.
This year, it has been decided to confer the Mohun Bagan Ratna posthumously on legendary footballer Late Jarnail Singh. His daughter will be present to receive the award.
The members of Mohun Bagan Athletic Club will get 1 complimentary ticket, on producing the membership card for the season 2011-12, from the club tent between 1 pm and 7 pm.
The Mohun Bagan Cricket team will be felicitated for winning 4 trophies this season. The Best Cricket player of the season 2011-12 will receive Dhiren Dey Award, the recipient of this award, however, has not yet been declared.
Rahim Nabi and Manish Bharghav will receive award for being the Best Player of McDowell Mohun Bagan and Best Player of MBSFA respectively for the season 2011-12.
