SRMB Srijan Ltd. is one of the sponsors of ATK this season
23th September 2015
On a rainy afternoon in humid Kolkata, Atletico de Kolkata unveiled one of their lead sponsors for this season of ISL. And, it is an organisation that has renewed its association with the club for the second year in a row. Say hello to SRMB Srijan Ltd, fanATKs!
Speaking to members of press, team co-owner Mr. Utsav Parekh expressed happiness about the continued association of ATK with SRMB Srijan. He said, "SRMB has always supported the game of football, which is the game of the masses and the game that everyone plays". Talking about the team's prospects in this edition of the ISL, he said, "ATK is working towards ensuring that Calcutta continues to hold the cup!"
This year the ISL guidelines have been amended to allow 6 sponsor logos on team jerseys as opposed to 5 last year. And, SRMB has found its pride of place on the chest!
With 6 lead sponsors and 12 associate sponsors on board, ATK looks set to rock ISL 2. Club CEO Subrata Talukdar even mentioned the possibility of having cricket stalwart Kapil Dev, who is SRMB Srijan's brand ambassador, at one of our home matches!
Mr Talukdar also talked about Atletico's plans of focussing on developing the game at grassroots level. He said, "It is our obligation towards ISL and a serious responsibility towards football. The sport has a strong base in Bengal and we seek SRMB Srijan's support in taking football forward here!"
With more sponsors and a higher level of interest in football ever, looks like ISL 2 is set to bring about a hitherto unseen revolution in the game in India. As fans of the beautiful game, what more could we ask for? And, what makes us even happier is that the team looks set to retain the cup! Head coach Antonio Lopez Habas spoke to us saying, "This is a much better team than last year. And, can carry us through to the finals"!
There you go, FanATKs! Get ready for an awesome season of football!
