Kolkata: Mohun Bagan expressed concern over ground conditions of Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata, the venue of I-League and various international football fixtures.

Mohun Bagan General Secretary Anjan Mitra in a letter to West Bengal Sports Minister Madan Mitra mentioned the pitch condition as well as the galleries, saying major football clubs did not want to play there due to the artificial turf, which caused injuries to players.

Besides, it also lacked facilities for spectators like safe drinking water and proper toilets, the letter said. The club requested the minister to convene a meeting with all stakeholders to sort out the problems immediately.

Many of the ongoing IFA Shield matches are being held at the Municipal stadium in Kalyani in Nadia district instead of Yuba Bharati Krirangan, also known as the Salt Lake Stadium.
