“This is something that we’ve been working on for a while and we’re very keen on executing it. We’ve always wanted to launch a series of tournaments for the football community in Bangalore. To give children the opportunity to play in high-level tournaments is the main focus. We will be kicking things off with the BFC Inter-School Soccer Shield that will take place between October 7 and 16 at the Bangalore Football Stadium before we begin the Corporate Rumble and the Inter-College Face-Off,” said Ghouse who was accompanied by BFC CTO and tournament director Mandar Tamhane, club right-back Vishal Kumar, Ajit Ravindran Managing Partner- Meraki Sport & Entertainment, Krishna Narayanan, honorary secretary KSFA and ST Bhoopal, honorary secretary BDFA.

As many as twenty three schools from the city will be participating across three age categories – under-10 (7v7, 30 minute game), 12 (9v9, 40 minute game) and 14 (11v11, 50 minute game) – in the tournament that will be played on a league-cum-knockout basis.

“We feel that we need to create this competition at the lower age groups. From Bengaluru FC’s point of view, we will have all the talent from the lower age groups available. Our youth coaches will be on the lookout for talent that can be part of the club’s academy,” said Tamhane. BFC has also got on board Soccer Trac – an app that will update scores, results and fixtures of the tournament in real time.

Ghouse also announced new season-long partnerships for the club with Enerzal who have come on board as official sports drink for BFC and Radio City who will be the Blues’ radio partners for the 2015-16 season. Speaking on the partnership, FDC’s Director, Ameya Chandavarkar said, “It’s a proud moment for all of us at FDC. We believe Enerzal is a very relevant product for footballers.
