Amateur Football

The Cooperage Ground has been around since 1993 but has not really been used to a real extent till 2007 when the I-League was created.

Future Plans

In April 2011 plans were announced for the Cooperage Ground to be renovated when FIFA announced that they would give the West India Football Federation two million dollars in order to renovate that stadium. [1] On the 12th of June 2011 it was announced in the Bombay High Court that the West India Football Association would be given the right to renovate the Cooperage Ground. [2] Then in August 2011 it was rumored that the Cooperage would not be fully renovated till the end of the fifth round during the 2011–12 I-League season. This would mean that the teams that play at the Cooperage Ground would need to look for a temporary ground. [3]
