The stakeholders of Mohun Bagan on Wednesday announced that they would remove the prefix ATK from the name of the ISL IX champions.

The club, which is principally owned by the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, will now be known Mohun Bagan Super Giant, a pattern which follows the conglomerate's naming philosophy of their sports teams. RPSG is also the owner of the IPL franchise Lucknow Super Giants.


"Subsequent to the Board meeting held today, the name of the club will be Mohun Bagan Super Giant (MBSG) from 1st June 2023," the club announced.

ATK Mohun Bagan won ISL IX with a 4-3 win over Bengaluru FC in March this year.

Following their triumph, Sanjiv Goenka had announced that the ATK prefix was finally going away after three years and they would be known as MBSG.

"We are removing ATK, it will be Mohun Bagan Super Giant from next season," Goenka had said after their ISL triumph.
