    I saw a CFL match of PU vs MB on News Time which was at Siliguri and they got a decent crowd support.. The stands behind the goal post was completely packed and also fair no. of people along the length of the pitch..

    yeah Shiliguri is a big fan base of EB but they might be able to build a decent fan base for themselves with time.

    The fan base is not only in Calcutta it is all over the world among the Bengalis!!! Every Bengali is either MB or EB by birth. And, it is no surprise EB has a bigger fan base in Siliguri. PU has to connect to locals to have that change over heart!! This is cant be done unless PU interact socially or they have an academy or something in Siliguri. Until, then its we have to be satisfied by empty stands expect EB or MB matches.

    <br><div><br></div><div>True. Its like in America where the fans will support there MLS and Euro team accept here it is MB or EB and Prayag. (I dont count Euro here to because, unlike in the US in India the matches are on after I-League matches).</div>

    At the end, if Prayag brings some sucess (read: Trophies, even if some shitty one's to start with) in Siliguri. The locals will be elated as at last they have something from their own town...the new generation wont have much difficulty in identifying themselves with Prayag.<div><br></div><div>One reason why Prayag needs to use their bench and few experienced players to play few unimportant trophies also. And if they win then celebrate in style in Siliguri, nothing works better than pride.</div>

    Superb signing by Prayag United. The new season is showing some great promises with respect to quality of players. The quality of I-league is increasing, surely.<br>
