ATK Mohun Bagan FC reveal home and away kit
ATK Mohun Bagan FC has released their home and away kits for the 2020-21 season of the Indian Super League.
The 2019-20 ISL champions ATK and the 2019-20 I-League champions Mohun Bagan merged into a single entity forming ATK Mohun Bagan FC which will be taking part in the 2020-21 ISL season.
ATK Mohun Bagan was one of the first clubs to get visas for their overseas players and assemble them at their training base in Goa and has further made their fans more excited by revealing kits for the upcoming season as well.
In the past few weeks, there have been controversies around how the league is treating the new entity as ATK with the official league website showing three stars on the ATKMB jersey representing three ISL wins of ATK. Fans of Mohun Bagan had enraged on Twitter and started a campaign asking for the centenary club Mohun Bagan and its rich history to be respected by the league.
Since then, the club’s higher management of the club has decided to respect and value the 131 year-long history of Mohun Bagan by retaining the legendary Mohun Bagan jersey colors in the new ATK Mohun Bagan jersey.
The home kit has a very familiar feel to it as the club has retained the ‘green and maroon’ colors for the home jersey with the red shorts and the red & white socks to go along with it. MP Birla Cement had an ongoing three-year deal with Mohun Bagan as the shirt sponsor when the merger happened so they find a place in the centre of the shirt along with the main sponsors SPOTOP.net below the logo.
The away jersey is majorly white unlike last season with maroon stripes in the middle of it separating the new club logo and MP Birla Cement. White shorts and white socks with maroon stripes will be worn by the players to complete the away kit.
