East Bengal Football Club has inked a partnership deal with a new corporate, after their UB Group partnership concluded last month. This time Bengaluru headquartered Quess Corporation Ltd. has expressed desires to support the club as its poised to make a slip into the Indian Super League. Both the parties now own equal shares with a rumoured investment of nearly 70 Crores in the first year. This development will not only help the club as a boost to raise its infrastructural status, but is going to play a crucial role in their quest to become the ninth club in the ISL. 


After today, the club will be named renamed as, Quess East Bengal Football Club. 


Confirming the new partnership QEBFC Managing Director Kalyan Majumdar said " We were contemplating options after our association with UB GRoup came to an end last month and approached Quess with a partnership proposal.We are happy and excited with this partnership with the Quess brand and together we are hopeful of building India's best football club.The association with Quess is promisingand brings a refreshing change for the club and its members and fans with many untapped possibilities.We believe our best is yet to come and we now aim to achieve new landmarks in the game of Football”

Wondering what these Quess guys do?


Quess Corporation Ltd is Asia’s biggest provider of business services that operates in five sectors Industrial, Integrated Facility Management, Human Resource Services, Global Tech Solutions and Internet Business. Quess happens to be the subsidiary of Thomas Cook India and is listed in Bombay Stock Exchange. Quess employs as many as 2,61,700 employees globally and the company announced its gross revenue as Rs1,583.95 Crores. 



Clearly, Quess Corporation isn’t as big and grossing as their erstwhile partners, UB Group but the kind of culture the company nurtures and invests in, it looks like East Bengal is in good pair of hands and this comes out as a brilliant news for all the club supporters. 


Commenting on the partnership Quess CMD, Mr Ajit Isaac said "As Quess develops from being a services provider to building multiple platforms with a large number of employees and customers, it is necessary that we invest in long term branding initiatives that cut across multiple segments of the society.The partnership with EBFC provide exactly this and we excited by the possibility of contributing to the development of World's #1 sport —Football in India and at the same time to be invested in one of the best sports properties. Sports and Business both produce winners when the partnerships are right and investments are prudent. The sporting activities of the club will gather pace now with efforts to join the ISL as well as to enhance the player base, training capacity and infrastructure required to achieve more sporting trophies.”
