Beighton Cup is one of the most seasoned hockey competition running till date. Instituted in 1895, it is composed by Bengal Hockey Association and used to be hung on common grass at the Mohun Bagan ground on the Maidan in Kolkata in India and for most recent couple of years has been hung on Astro Turf at Sports Authority of India in Kolkata.
The Beighton Cup was displayed by T.D. Beighton, Legal Remembrancer of the Government of Bengal, and was run at first by the Indian Football Association. The Calcutta Hockey League took off in 1905. English officers advanced the diversion amongs't warriors in India; hockey, as a sorted out game, began in Kolkata. The Anglo-Indian clubs of the time, most altogether, the Calcutta Naval Volunteers Club, now the Calcutta Rangers Club merit a major offer of the credit.
Not exclusively did Rangers Club win the Beighton Cup nine times, incorporating into its inaugural year, it was specifically in charge of two of the nation's Olympic gold decorations. At the point when the Indian Olympic Committee did not have the assets to send the Indian group in 1932 and 1936, it was the liberality of the Rangers Club, rich with reserves from its four-times-each year sweepstakes, that guaranteed that the group set sail for Los Angeles and Berlin
