IFA yet to declare CPL fixture!

The governing body of Bengal football has yet to declare the fixture for the most sought after local league in the state, the Calcutta Premier League. Unofficial sources say that the CPL is scheduled to set off from the 9th of July with Mohun Bagan playing their first match of the season on the 11th of July and IFA has assured to declare the fixture by 8th July.

18th July: Unknown

22nd July: Unknown

26th July: Mohd. Sp.

30th July: Unkown
