Soccer at the Shankar Laxman Stadium (Garrison Ground),Mhow

Sept 18, 2010 - Rajeshwar Vidyalaya Mhow defeated Jagdale School, Indore by 1-0 in the finals of the Mir Iqbal Hussain trophy for schools.

Soccer and hockey have been two of the most popular games of Mhow. Not surprising considering the Army presence here and the support that these sports got from the various regiments stationed here.

We also have a new plaque, a rather huge one at that, in honour of Honorary Captain Shankar Laxman the legendary hockey goalkeeper who was born in Kodariya village of Mhow and had joined the 5th battalion of the Maratha Light Infantry. Being a proper Mhow walla he was one of those who bridged the civil military gap in Mhow.
