Mohun Bagan fans have waited for this moment for more than 6 months but when they came out to the streets to celebrate the Kolkata giants’ I-league triumph.

Mohun Bagan was presented with the I-League trophy on Sunday in Kolkata in the presence of WB sports minister.

Players and coaches who were present in the city joined the trophy presentation ceremony.

Mohun Bagan also made sure other players and coaches who were not able to attend the ceremony in person were part of the event virtually on a video conference.

“As informed earlier that due to stringent guidelines and protocols laid down by the Central and State Government we had to shift the event to a closed confined place to adhere to the covid protocol guidelines,” IndiaToday reported.

But, Mohun Bagan organised a trophy process from the hotel to the Mohun Bagan Athletic Club. The I-League trophy was put into a glass cascade in an open Jeep to bring it to the club after the trophy presentation ceremony.

However, fans were seen gathering in huge numbers during the victory parade, which was organised by the franchise. The scenes from the videos shared by Mohun Bagan were scary as it was apparent that Covid-19 protocols were being flouted.

Quite a few on social media expressed their concerns as fans were seen getting together in groups during the trophy tour on Sunday.
