I would like to thank AIFF for providing us this opportunity. Such a Championship would further enhance the overall development of the boys," he told www.the-aiff.com.

"In a Youth Development setup, results stay immaterial. But tell me, leaving out AFC age-group Tournaments, when did ever an Indian Team, that too an U-16 bunch of boys, get such an opportunity? This only depicts AIFF's seriousness to give exposure to our boys," he stated. "Our boys are very excited to be a part of the Asian Champions Trophy."

Frenz United Football Club President Dato Noor Ihsan said they are ?waiting eagerly for AIFF XI to play in the Tournament. "After the success of the first edition we felt we need to approach others Teams as well. Hence, we looked to the East and roped in a Team from China and when we looked westwards, we just could't look beyond India. We are waiting eagerly for the AIFF Academy boys to play," he told www.the-aiff.com.

The AIFF Academy boys would play all their Home Matches at the Barasat Stadium under the lights. The matches on May 24, May 31 and June 21 would also be telecast live on DD Sports.
