Mohammedan Sporting adds Rs 10m sponsorship

Anil Ambani's Reliance group has signed a Rs.10 million ($226,085) deal with Indian football club Mohammedan Sporting for an unknown period. "The sponsorship deal is a big achievement for the club as it will help us to get better foreign players and also provide other players with better facilities," club secretary Sultan Ahmed told IANS. The club already has SPS Group, makers of Elegant Steel, as sponsor and Reebok supplies the players' kit. Mohammedan Sporting, founded in 1892, is one of the leading football clubs in Kolkata, along with East Bengal FC and Mohan Bagan FC.
