The team have moved away from the Yuvabharati Krirangan stadium this season and will play their home matches at the Rabindra Sarobar stadium in the South of Kolkata. The arena has a capacity of just over 26,000 spectators which should see packed houses during the ISL 3.
The side made a few key additions before the beginning of last season. Portuguese striker Helder Postiga was brought in and he made an instant impact before being ruled out for the majority of the competition. Hume had joined from the Kerala Blasters and went on to score 11 goals in the competition last year. Both strikers have been retained by the franchise for ISL 3.
Habas has departed after two years with Atletico. The Spaniard has been replaced by Jose Francisco Molina who is his compatriot. Alberto Marrero has been roped in as the sporting director for this edition of the ISL.
Last season’s draft picks Rino Anto and Arata Izumi have left the side but they have kept hold of some of their best talents. Defenders Arnab Mondal, Pritam Kotal and Kingshuk Debnath will play an important part alongside Jewel Raja, Lalrindika Ralte and Bikramjit Singh.
Sameegh Doutie, who had made a real impression with Atletico last season will feature for Atletico in ISL 3 as well. The South African can be a real asset going forward and would complement Postiga and Hume. Tiri, Ofentse Nato, Javi Lara, and Borja Fernandez have all been retained while Juan Belencoso has been brought in to supplement the attack. Scottish midfielder Stephen Pearson has also joined the ranks. ISL kolkata team list 2016 roster is placed below.
