Atletico De Kolkata News

Atletico de Kolkata is an Indian Super League football franchise based in Kolkata, West Bengal, India. It was established on May 7, 2014. It is not only one of the best teams in the league, but also the most expensive franchise, as it was purchased for ₹18 crore.

Commonly abbreviated as ATK, the franchise was the first team in the Indian Super League, and also the first ever winner of the competition.

It is owned by Kolkata Games and Sports Pvt. Ltd. The organisation consists of La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid, alongside former Indian Cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly, and businessmen Sahil Barua, Harshavardhan Neotia, Sanjiv Goenka and Utsav Parekh.

Spanish star footballer Luis Garcia was the club’s marquee player in the inaugural ISL season. Portuguese forward Helder Postiga is the current marquee signing, and Spanish midfielder Borja Fernandez is the team captain.

The team’s colours – just like their name – are derived from their Spanish partners Atletico Madrid. The club’s home ground is the Salt Lake City stadium, which happens to be the biggest stadium in India, with a capacity of 108,000.
