Club Director: Mukul Choudhary
Stadium: Rajarshi Shahu Stadium,Kolhapur
The club was founded in 2007 by the Essel Group, around the same time when Zee Sports had bought the broadcasting rights of the I-League for a period of ten years from the All India Football Federation.
They are based in Mumbai and were setup with the intention to help develop the talent of youngsters in the city as well as giving them a team to cheer for.
Mumbai FC play their home games at the Cooperage stadium in Southern Mumbai, however due to the stadium being in urgent need of maintenance, which was being withheld due to legal reasons, Mumbai FC played their home games at the Rajarshi Shahu Stadium in Kolhapur.
The team made a dream start in the competitive circuit, winning the prestigious Abhijit Kadam Memorial Trophy, which is held at Pune. They followed this up by winning the I-League division II title and finished runner-up in the Mumbai Football League. Since gaining promotion, they have been a stable part of the I-League, although they have suffered financial problems over the last one year.
Their biggest contribution so far has been the organization of the Junior Champs Football Championship, which involves teams from across the country with thousands of youngsters being scouted. The best of the lot are given the chance to play for various age level teams of Mumbai FC and also represent the team at International events like the Manchester United Premier Cup.
Mumbai FC play their home matches at the Cooperage Ground in southern Mumbai which has a capacity of 12,000. Right now the Western Indian Football Federation has said that they will be upgrading the stadium and that it will be completed by the beginning of the 2011-12 I-League season.
The club played their home matches at the 10,000 capacity, artificial turf stadium of Rajarshi Shahu which is located in Kolhapur.
