The fans have been awaiting for a long time for the D-day when FSDL would be announcing the entry of East Bengal FC into ISL officially. There have been several news and rumours about possible dates of announcement but none of them happened. However, as per renowned Indian football journalist Marcus Mergulhao, the announcement is set to happen this week itself.
FSDL had opened the bid papers for the entry of the 11th team into the Indian Super League from the 2020/21 season itself and East Bengal FC were the sole bidders for the place as reported. The new investors Shree Cement and East Bengal Club jointly formed the “Shree Cement East Bengal Foundation” company, which would hold the sporting rights for East Bengal FC and had submitted the bid papers to play in the ISL before the deadline on 17th September. As reported, the documents would go through a verification and auditing process by an external audit firm and after only the clearance from them, FSDL will officially announce the entry of East Bengal FC into the Indian Super League.
