FIFA President Sepp Blatter's open letter to Mohun Bagan AC!

Today, the FIFA President, Sepp Blatter's letter reached the Mohun Bagan office appologizing for his inability to preside over the U-17 International Tournament that MBSFA is about to hold in a few months time. Mohun Bagan on behalf of MBSFA had sent out an invitation to the FIFA President, Sepp Blatter to attend the U-17 International Tournament. But Blatter today sent Bagan a letter where he appologized for his unavailibilty during the tournament but he has given words to the Bagan officials to help them in every need and also has asked the AIFF to build a synthetic turf for footballing purpose within the MBSFA premises before the upcoming U-17 Tournament.
This is the first incident of its type in India when the FIFA president has sent a letter to a particular individual club. Certainly something to be proud of for the mariners!
