Last Updated 2:06 PM 17th September 2020 .
The eight-month long wait is finally set to be over for the Red and Gold fans as East Bengal FC are reported to be the sole bidder for the 11th team in the Indian Super League 2020/21 season as per reports.
The FSDL opened bids for the entry of one team from the current season itself and it was said that an IT firm based in UK also had picked up the bid papers alongside East Bengal FC. However, the other entity did not submit the bid documents and are only said to be checking waters with possible investment into Indian football in near future.
East Bengal FC announced on Tuesday evening that they had submitted the online bid documents and have also processed the sending of hardcopies which are expected to reach the FSDL office by today evening, the aforesaid deadline day. It is expected that FSDL will be announcing the official entry of East Bengal FC soon, most probably between 18-20th September via their website and social media platforms.
The East Bengal FC team management is also expected to make the announcement of the team’s coach and players including foreigners once the official declaration of their entry into the Indian Super League 2020/21 is announced.
