Delhi Dynamos FC to hold open football trials

MUMBAI: This April will see a football revolution sweep Delhi. Young and budding football players in the city born between 2002 - 2004 will get an opportunity to showcase their talent. The children will also get a chance to be a part of a skill enrichment workshop and larger opportunities. They will train alongside some of the best fresh talent across the country.


Continuing its efforts in grassroots and youth football development, the Delhi Dynamos Football Club (DDFC), the national capital’s football team in the Hero Indian Super League (ISL), launched the second leg of its grassroots programme in Delhi-NCR.


DDFC aims to create sustainable opportunities for children (born in 2002, 2003 or 2004) in the region through open trials, starting 11 April, 2015.


In 2014, the inaugural year of the Hero Indian Super League and the Delhi Dynamos FC, the Dynamos had initiated a grassroots football development programme in Delhi, ‘Junior Dynamos’, which became one of the largest ever Inter-School Football Tournament with a participation of over 2400 players from over 180 schools.


The Dynamos are now stepping up their game by holding Delhi’s first ever open football trials to identify and nurture real footballing talent at a young age. DDFC hopes to refine these children’s game skills, enhance their technical knowledge and ultimately mould them into professional football players.


The first of these open football trials will be held in Delhi on 11 April at the Ambedkar Stadium, and is open to all participants from the Delhi NCR area aged between 11 to 13 years. The participants will be given a chance to showcase their talents under the guidance of the Delhi Dynamos FC technical team. Talented children will be shortlisted to participate in the Reliance Foundation Young Champs selection camp. Delhi Dynamos FC is looking at finding the next ‘Face of Indian Football’ from Delhi.
