On September 25th, 1977, Mohun Bagan A.C. played a friendly match at the Eden Gardens against the star-studded New York Cosmos (a team from the original North American Soccer League). The team had some legendary players such as Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer, Carlos Alberto and Giorgio Chinaglia. But the Interesting thing is the match ended with the score a 2-2.

The UB India is also the world’s largest whiskey company by volume. Bigger for Bigger.
