Player Development

Bengaluru FC has established a unique player development pathway for every young boy and girl who wishes to follow his dreams and become a professional football player. BFC coaches are equipped to train an advanced curriculum with latest training techniques specially designed for all age groups.

The Soccer Schools form the base of the pyramid with students learning all the fundamental skills necessary to make the cut to the fully funded BFC youth academy.

The coaches engage with the players throughout the year to fine tune their basic skills and play regular matches.

Giving children the basics in football at the early ages is very important and BFC Soccer Schools does just that. Having seen some of these children play and train, I can assure you that we have talent in our ranks, at the grassroots level and in the academy, that will in time go on to represent this club at the highest level.

As a player who has been through several academies, I can testify that the football that we learn at the earliest stages is, in most cases, what determines whether we are successful or not. Having come through the younger age groups of the National Team, the BFC Soccer Schools has a structured program that is modeled parallel to the first team.

Being from Bangalore and having played on the streets, I know the kind of talent that is present in the city. The investment that JSW puts into the BFC Soccer Schools is already yielding results with several players now part of the fully funded youth academy.
