    “Bengal has in its blood football, cricket, and other sports. We have a bigger stadium, Salt Lake Stadium. Even Eden Gardens has a bigger capacity than this stadium. 

    We have come here to see their infrastructure and how they are doing business with football. This is a good idea. I am hopeful to use this idea in the future.”

West Bengal has always been committed to promoting sports, nurturing young talents, and fostering a culture of athleticism. Let the visit remind us that sports unites us all, strengthens ties, and promotes cultural exchange.”
