The board of ATK Mohan Bagan have decided to retain the iconic green and maroon jersey which is synonymous with the 131-year-old legacy of the football club.

The name of the club has been changed to ATK Mohan Bagan after the merger of ISL team ATK and I- league team Mohan Bagan for the upcoming ISL 2020-21.

“The culture and tradition which has made the brand a household name have been preserved. The logo retains its essence.

“The addition of ATK within the logo ensures that the fast-growing and passionate following built on a short but highly successful period is also being carried forward,” the merged entity said in a statement.

The club also announced that they are planning to build a world-class academy in Bengal and will renovate the Mohan Bagan facility so that ISL and AFC home games can be held there.

Add to that, the club will look after enhancing the infrastructure of football in Bengal so that more young talent can come from the grass-root level.

“Mohun Bagan has been close to my heart since childhood. I have had the honor to watch the Green and Maroon play some of their best football,”principal owner Sanjiv Goenka, who acquired a majority stake of 80 per cent in Mohun Bagan, said.

“The iconic green and maroon colors of Mohun Bagan jersey retained” ATK tweeted.

Indian Cricket Board president Sourav Ganguly, who is a co-owner of ATK and a director of the board, also attended the virtual meeting which lasted less than 30 minutes.

I salute the coming together of ATK and Mohun Bagan. Together the brand name ATK Mohun Bagan will create history,” the former India captain said.
