Two Kolkata-based clubs from India – Mohun Bagan AC and Kolkata Mohammedan SC – have so far confirmed their participation, along with reigning champion and Maldives’ top-ranked outfit TC Sports Club, who officially sent their confirmation this week for the upcoming Sheikh Kamal International Club Cup, scheduled to be held in October.

Another traditional club from Kolkata, East Bengal FC also verbally agreed to take part in the eight-club event where three clubs from tge host nation – six-time professional league winner Abahani Limited, new Bangladesh Premier League champion Bashundhara Kings and host club Chittagong Abahani – are expected to take part.

The remaining one club will most likely be from Thailand’s top-flight outfit Bangkok United FC, but the Thai club have not officially confirmed their participation yet, informed tournament committee coordinator Shakil Mahmud Chowdhury Wednesday.

“All the participating teams are almost settled. Three clubs each from India and Bangladesh will take part, along with one club apiece from Maldives and Thailand. Mohun Bagan and Kolkata Mohammedan officially confirmed, while we reached a verbal agreement with East Bengal, who will also confirm after their club’s board meeting soon,” said Shakil.

Shakil continued, “Maldives league champion TC Sports are the only club who submitted the official participating form after getting No Objection Certificate from the local federation. We also approached Thai professional club Bangkok United, we hope they will confirm their participation within two-three days.”

Meanwhile, the third edition of the only international club cup competition hosted by Bangladesh is expected to be held from October 18-30 at the MA Aziz Stadium in Chittagong.

Chittagong Abahani Limited, the organizer of the tournament, won the inaugural edition in 2015 after beating East Bengal in the final.
