Mohun Bagan officials are set to participate in a meeting in a five-star hotel in Kolkata to discuss investors today.
For a long time now, Mohun Bagan supporters have been demanding corporatization of the club. While the club officials have claimed from time to time that they have options to choose for sponsorship, the fans have accused the club of faking it all for political gimmick. The lack of sponsors has caused a scarcity of funds at the club.
The inability to invest has been a prime reason why the club has not been able to win the I-league title for the last two seasons.

With the arrival of Quess Corp Private Limited, East Bengal have intensified their efforts to join the Indian Super League bandwagon, and this has set alarm bells ringing at Mohun Bagan.
Without proper investment, the club might not be able to join the Indian Super League and in due course of time, the club might end up playing in the second division as the Indian league is set to be restructured soon.
On Sunday, fans assembled at the club tent to stage a huge protest.
