Cooperage Football Stadium – stadium description
The stadium was created in 1993 on leisure grounds between four historical districts of Mumbai. Initially equipped with modest wooden stands, it proved far insufficient in 2007, when Mumbai FC began playing here as the I-League took off.
Great leap in infrastructure was enabled by FIFA, who donated $2 million in 2011 towards the stadium’s expansion. Synthetic turf, floodlights and 9 steel grandstands holding over 4,000 people were installed. Eventually the stadium is planned to expand in the future.
Since 2014 Mumbai City FC are the secondary tenant. However, the ISL club (competition to I-League) uses much larger Wankhede Stadium as their main venue.
