Elite games would also be organized at Cooperage depending on the availability of the ground. The lower division play-off games will also be conducted at this ground.”

“Besides holding the MDFA matches and the Mumbai City FC ISL matches, we would also like that the MSSA Inter-Schools matches, especially the semi-final and final matches be played on this ground,” he further added.

Thackeray mentioned that the MDFA is in the process of developing a ground at the Bandra. “A ground with artificial turf is being prepared near Rang Sharda in Bandra (West). The ground is expected to be complete by the first week of December.  That way we will be able to complete our leagues smoothly and on time.”

Thackeray also pointed out that the MDFA has approached the Maharashtra government for land to construct a football ground. “I have requested the State government to allot a plot of land in the eastern suburbs, maybe at BKC to build a non commercial football ground. We are also looking out for some more plots for football ground,” he mentioned.
