Football Academies

Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools

Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools (BBFS) runs under the philosophy that no talented Indian kid should be deprived of the best football coaching facilities in the country due to want of money. We are an all-inclusive venture and offers special schemes for worthy candidates from economically vulnerable backgrounds, personally screened by the BBFS team. As much as 30% of the enrolled students at BBFS are targeted to be from the underprivileged section of the society. Needy and talented children from various age groups are offered scholarships of upto 100% so they get an opportunity to get the best out of their talent. We engage closely with our young players to guide them through the path of becoming a senior pro. We encourage all parents to interact closely with our coaches so that we can together form the best support system for our kids. Through our network and technical expertise, we also provide our students opportunities to appear for selection trials with top clubs in the country and abroad.

Mumbai Regional Academy

The year 1902 saw the formation of the Bombay Football Association to run a League Tournament. Seven teams, viz., Oxford Ltd., R.A., Bombay Rovers, Bombay Gymkhana, Telegraphs, Bombay Volunteers Artillery and H.M.S. Magdala participated in it and Oxfords became the Champions and Gunners, the runner-up. The Cup was donated by Col. Harwood, the President of the Association. Thus the League was later named after him. But this Trophy was misplaced. The present one, “the Advocate of India Cup” was presented by Mr. Gordon, proprietor of this evening paper in 1913.

In 1950 a new team arose on the horizon the Hyderabad Police-who made a triumphal march through the Rovers for five consecutive years. No team in the long history of this tournament has succeeded in winning the trophy for more than three years in succession. In fact the Cheshires and the Middlesex Regiments were the only two who had captured it thrice before. The Hyderabadis have actually added more feathers to their caps by gaining the laurels on two more occasions. This is an achievement for which any team may be justly proud.
