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.

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.
