Blue Pilgrims Collaboration Tifo Fund - INDIA vs Bangladesh.

March to Mecca friends!

Yes, you heard that right! This is our slogan! Let's move to the Mecca of Indian Football. We need not name the city right? You all know where the Mecca of football in India is ! On the 15th of October, 2019, the City of Joy will witness the World Cup Qualifiers between India and Bangladesh. Where else but the VYBK, that is where we will be to help our team qualify for the next round of the World Cup Qualifiers!

The Yuvabharati Krirangan has witnessed many battles, challenges and rivalries in its history. This time it will witness another massive challenge, another adrenaline packed night, but not a rivalry! This time India will see the combined strength of the supporters of 3 of the oldest clubs in the country along with every other footballing fan in the city and those who have traveled from far and wide of our vast and diverse nation! So come the 15th of October, when our national team sets foot on this holy turf, we will all be bound by one identity - India. When we set foot in the Mecca of Indian football we will sing in unison for our mother land- our backs straight, our heads up, voices cleared and under one flag. On that day we are all Blue Pilgrims- East Bengal- Mohun Bagan- Mohammedan Sporting and fans of all other clubs, arm in arm together - all the sons and daughters of the city of joy, the city of hearts, the city of football…..

Leading up to this big day and of course on that very day, Indian football will witness something that it has never seen before. The following Ultras groups and fan clubs will work shoulder to shoulder to support their country, forgetting all their differences, anger and hatred.

Blue Pilgrims will collaborate with:


1. Mariners’ Base Camp
2. Football is in our Blood ( FIIOB)
3. East Bengal The Real Power( EBRP)
4. Jiboner Rong Sobuj Maroon (JRSM)
5. Rokte Amar Mohun Bagan(RAMB)
6. Andul Mariners
7. Laal Holud Bahini
8. Nabadwip Mariners
9. Roaring Bangals
10. Chandannagar Mariners
11. Lal Holud Aikya
12. Green and Maroon Warriors
13. Raudy Soccer league
14. Beleghata Mariners
15. Thakurpukur  Mohuntori 

To inspire the Indian football team, Blue Pilgrims is creating a large hand painted Tifo, along with various other inspirational hand painted banners and a huge national flag in the gallery. We have historically produced magnificent images for football in India and abroad. To do it again, we need your financial help for this vast activity. Without your help and participation, it is not possible for us to implement things on such a large scale.

So we request everyone to contribute to Blue Pilgrims India vs Bangladesh Match Activity Fund, whatever is within their means. Let us all forget our differences for this one day and together  give Indian football an image that will be remembered by many over the world for a long long time.

Kolkata , we’ve never witnessed anything like you, we’ve been far and wide to support the Indian National Team but no where have we seen or felt truth depth and intensity of love , at all points of time around us. They call it “abeg” here - this word packs in all attributes of the sentimental fanatic.
When we started planning for kolkata, we were told “you will never succeed in uniting east bengal and mohun bagan fans”. “This is kolkata , stay out, here no one can cooperate”. But looking back at yesterday, we stand tall in pride, arm in arm , fans from three of the biggest fan bases in Asia, uniting to supporting the national team. There is no bigger advertisement than unity, no bigger headline than unity and no bigger respect than unity. Thank you kolkata for proving the cynics wrong. We scratched beyond the surface yesterday, and everywhere there was blue blood, blue tears and blue sweat. This tifo is the personification of blue blood sweat and tears. Let us tell you what this tifo has been through.
1. A shopping mall’s basement which caught fire and burnt down all cars except two, one of the two cars that were saved had our tifo cloth in it.
2. No place large enough to paint so the road, cars ran over our tifo as we made the grid lines for the design , it broke our hearts but we could do nothing.
3. Abuse by local residents for painting in front of their house, unfortunately “Doing it for India” did not work. We learnt that Not everyone cares about football even in kolkata, imagine how many heads we will have to turn for the rest of the country if the Mecca itself has so much to change. We remind you again that we football fans are a drop in the ocean of India there’s so much to change and we must move forward together
4. The rain, probably our biggest nemesis. No covered place + Rain led to a tifo cloth that looked like it had been in the gutter, which eventually led us to modify our design and ages for the paint to dry.
5. Endless amounts of love , dedication and respect for the nation of India. Our mother, for which sleepless nights, scorching sun or torrential rain mean little, rivalries mean little, the distress of rework meant little, leaves and loss of time with family sacrificed during a period when Bengalis celebrate their biggest festival, Durga Puja.
6. The true sense of the word “Kolkata football er abeg” Mohun Bagan fans painted the East Bengal Jersey and East Bengal fans painted the Mohun Bagan jersey, both sets of fans painted the Mohammedan jersey. Both along the way said “ I can’t believe I’m doing this” but not once did they get up and leave.
To conclude, the purpose of the tifo was not just in line with our objective of upholding ”legends of the land” but was to scratch the surface - the fabricated cauldron of hate, and the overly publicised ‘great divide’ and all other mentalities stuck in unidimension.
Except for Derby days, The 12th men of Kolkata in every day life walk just like this “hand in hand, arm in arm”, when the nation came calling it was no different.
