Wednesday, 8 March 2017|Abhishek Mukherjee

The return leg of I-League's Kolkata Derby between Mohun Bagan and East Bengal will be played at the Kanchenjungha Stadium in Siliguri on April 9. 

After much speculation, Bagan finally announced the venue at a press conference on Tuesday. 

Mohun Bagan's preferred venue to play the derby was Rabindra Sarobar Stadium but was denied permission from the police authorities, leaving Bagan with just two available options- Siliguri and Cuttack. 

With Cuttack needing a lot if infrastructural development, Bagan officials opted for Siliguri. 

The tickets for the match will go on sale from April 3 and be available both in Kolkata and Siliguri.
