0

The
Islanders
fly
out
on
Sunday
(July
24th)
to
the
United
Arab
Emirates
and
will
set
up
their
base
in
Jebel
Ali,
Dubai
for
a
19-day
training
camp
starting
from
July
25
until
August
12.

Des
Buckingham’s
Mumbai
City
ended
the
2021-22
season
by
creating
history
at
the
2022
AFC
Champions
League,
becoming
the
first
Indian
club
to
win
a
game
in
Asia’s
premier
club
competition.
Building
on,
the
Islanders
are
eager
to
kickstart
their
pre-season
training
to
prepare
for
what
will
be
the
longest
season
in
recent
times
in
the
Indian
footballing
calendar.

The
preparations
will
focus
on
getting
the
team
ready
for
the
131st
Durand
Cup,
set
to
begin
on
August
16,
which
will
mark
the
start
of
the
new
domestic
football
season
in
India.
Drawn
in
Group
B,
Mumbai
City
FC
will
square
off
against
ATK
Mohun
Bagan,
East
Bengal,
Indian
Navy
and
Rajasthan
United
in
what
will
be
the
Islanders’ maiden
appearance
in
Asia’s
oldest
football
competition.

Des
Buckingham,
MCFC
said,
“I
am
extremely
proud
and
happy
with
how
we
started
and
finished
last
season,
especially
in
the
AFC
Champions
League.
To
finish
second
in
the
group
stage
and
showcase
our
attacking
style
of
play
was
enjoyable
to
all
associated
with
the
club
and
showed
that
Indian
football
can
compete
and
win
at
the
highest
level
of
club
football
in
Asia.

“As
we
enter
the
new
season
we
will
look
to
continue
the
momentum
from
this
historic
campaign
as
we
start
our
pre-season
in
Dubai.
We
have
a
very
young
squad
here
at
Mumbai
City

the
average
age
of
our
domestic
contingent
is
just
23
and
have
added
some
further
quality
and
experience
in
the
off
season.
We
want
to
give
our
squad
a
platform
and
an
environment
that
is
conducive
to
their
growth
and
development
to
prepare
the
whole
team
as
well
as
possible
for
what
will
be
an
exciting
season
starting
with
the
Durand
Cup
in
August.”

Meanwhile,
MCFC
CEO
Kandarp
Chandra
said,
“Our
vision
for
the
upcoming
season
is
clear

we
want
to
build
a
team
that
can
compete
and
compete
well.
With
the
expertise
we
have
at
our
disposal,
I
believe
we
have
put
together
a
squad
that
can
do
just
that.

“Des
and
his
staff
are
determined
to
bring
the
best
out
of
this
incredibly
talented
playing
group
and
take
the
club
to
newer
heights.
There
is
a
desire
to
build
on
from
last
season
and
our
pre-season
camp
in
Dubai
will
lay
the
foundations
of
what
we
hope
will
be
a
successful
season
for
Mumbai
City,
starting
with
the
Durand
Cup
later
in
August.”
