Saturday, November 5, 2016 is a big day in the history of Indian football and it could turn even bigger courtesy Bengaluru FC. The club which is just three years old has created a bigger legacy and achieved far bigger things than clubs with decades of history – primarily due to well disciplined operations, administration and supported strongly by local fans.
In the first year, in 2013-14, Bengaluru FC won the I-League, the next year finished second in the league but won the Federation Cup and last year regained the league.
But the latest and arguably the biggest feather in the cap for the club is its foray into the final of the AFC Cup – continent’s second tier competition (behind AFC Champions League). Dempo and East Bengal have reached the semi-finals of the competition in the past but only Bengaluru FC have reached the final and could very well become the first to win the title.
Bengaluru FC’s opponents are the Air Force Club of Iraq and they are also making their first appearance in the final of the continental showdown.
