Darjeeling 15th All India Brigade of Gurkha’s Gold Cup from Nov 8
The 15th edition of the All India Brigade of Gurkha’s Gold Cup (AIBGGC) football tournament- an annual activity in the Hills- will be held from November 8 to 16. This will be the second time in this year that the tournament would be held.
The tournament more popularly known as the Gold Cup is being organized by the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Sports Association (DGHSA) in association with the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration Sports and Youth Affairs department.
“This year we are organizing two editions- the 14th and the 15th - of the tournament. In 2013 we could not hold the tournament because of certain reasons and so we made up for the loss by holding
it earlier this year in February,” said working president of the AIBGGC Dawa Lama,  while announcing the tourney on Wednesday in Darjeeling.
This year, 12 teams from Kolkata, Pune, Mumbai, Sikkim and Darjeeling are participating in the tournament which includes premier clubs like Pune Football Club, Dalhousie Football Club, ONGC Mumbai and the Army XI.
The Gold Cup was revived in 2010 after nearly 25 years of suspension because of the Gorkhaland agitation since 1986. The tournament could not be held in 2012 and 2013. (EOIC)
