Based on the performance, the final selection of talented players from today’s event will head to Mumbai along with their counterparts from 7 other Hero ISL teams to take part in the final selection camp where they will stand a chance to be selected for the Reliance Foundation Young Champs Programme.

Prashant Agarwal, President – Delhi Dynamos FC, said: “We very proud to conduct the Delhi leg of the Scouting Festival for Reliance Foundation Young Champs successfully. The immense quality on show is a result of immense scouting through our clinics, festivals and many other such initiatives. I am sure after seeing the talent and enthusiasm of our young Dynamos, Delhi would have a great representation in The Reliance Foundation Young Champs residential scholarship programme. This festival is also very crucial as it serves as the platform to kick start the grassroots initiatives for ISL 3. We are launching academies in several parts of the city with an elite academy in Greater Noida which would be up and running by August this year. We are also opening up an elite residential academy with world class facilities and infrastructure in Ekana, Lucknow later this year.”
