    Yes,,this is a genuine request from our bloved former players,who has been witnessed as well as some also participated that saddest moment of kolkata football.
    As a bloved supporter of Football,I also request to all football lovers & football organisers to pay the gratitude for those who, lost their lives on 16.08.1980,and pray RIPon behalf for the the soul of them.
    I strongly object that, if16th august the game will resume,then it will be insult the soul for that 13 supporters.So stop this match being notification to change another date,coz it’s is our sentimental matter
