Our Start

Diamond Harbour Football Club was founded on the auspicious occasion of Bengali New Year - April 15, 2022 by All India Trinamool Congress National General Secretary and Hon'ble MP of Diamond Harbour Shri Abhishek Banerjee at the Bata Stadium ground in Maheshtala, South 24 Parganas.

Support us as we celebrate the spirit of sports.


The sole purpose of the club will be to upgrade and improve the facilities & infrastructure available for football in Bengal and bring back the lost glory!. The club was launched with the aim to provide exposure to promising youngsters. Our target is to qualify for the CFL Premier A.


Within a couple of years we hope to qualify for the Premier A or B. We are confident of reaching greater heights within four-five years. If needed, we will also make a foray into ISL.
