The Complex houses the Mumbai Football Arena which was constructed and developed in accordance with FIFA guidelines earlier this year and will now host Mumbai City FC's home matches come October, said a media release.

Ranbir Kapoor, co-owner, Mumbai City FC said, "Our fans have shown us tremendous support through our two seasons despite results not being the best. We have always wanted to give back to them and moving into the heart of the city is one such step.

"Mumbai Football Arena (Shahji Raje Bhosle Kreeda Sankul) is a great venue, with easy accessibility for people across the city.
