Mumbai City FC formally announced that the Shahaji Raje Bhosle Kreeda Sankul (known popularly as the Andheri Sports Complex – BKLP) will be their new home stadium for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League.
The Complex houses the Mumbai Football Arena which was constructed and developed in accordance with FIFA guidelines earlier this year and will now host Mumbai City FC’s home matches come October. The Arena will serve as the team's fortress and stronghold and will house the club's passionate supporters for the season.
Ranbir Kapoor, Co-owner, Mumbai City FC said "Our fans have shown us tremendous support through our two seasons despite results not being the best. We have always wanted to give back to them and moving into the heart of the city is one such step. Mumbai Football Arena (Shahji Raje Bhosle Kreeda Sankul) is a great venue, with easy accessibility for people across the city. The support from Aditya Thackeray, MDFA, the BMC and everyone at the stadium has been tremendous. We can't wait to build this stadium into our new fortress, a place where away teams dread to come!"
