MARINERS ARENA

Some description text for this item

Mariners’ Arena initially came together as a fans group of India’s national club – Mohun Bagan Athletic Club. But soon we realised that Mohun Bagan is much more than what meets the eyes. It is not just a club, but an idea, a way of life and a dream. You don’t just support Mohun Bagan, you live Mohun Bagan.

Those who established and immortalized Mohan Bagan, wanted to see a strong and self dependent society, free of colonial occupation. And we, as their spiritual successors in the vast ‘green and maroon’ family, must strive for a strong and self dependent society, free of poverty, illiteracy, pollution, disparity, and health hazards.

With this realisation, was born, Mariners’ Arena Foundation, an NGO, working in the fields of education, natural conservation, health awareness, assistance to underprivileged children and elderly citizens, and sports. We cheer for our club on the stands, and live the values that it stands for through social services.

 

Vision and mission:

By the turn of 19th century, India found herself in the shackles of colonialism, illiteracy, poverty, and social disparity. During such times, a group of Bengali gentlemen in Calcutta established the Mohun Bagan club, to bring about a change in the social conditions around them through the medium of sports. It was this desire of change which enabled the ‘Immortal XI’ of Mohun Bagan to win the 1911 IFA Shield while playing barefooted against the British clubs and teams of erstwhile India.

In present times, India is free of colonialism, but a vast section of our society is still plagued by illiteracy, poverty, social disparity, health hazards. To add to it, growing pollution and contamination of nature is proving to be a major threat for the society and our future. Drawing inspiration from the values of Mohun Bagan and struggles of the ‘Immortal XI’, we are striving to bring holistic changes in the society, through promotion of education, support to the underprivileged, assistance to aspiring sportspersons from downtrodden sections, health awareness, natural conservation, and various other means.
