The past few months at Bangalore City Football Club have been busy! Just two months after beginning practices at their own turf, Total Football Turf, the club was able to start its own football league. Garden City Champions League included over 200 players from BCFC. Throughout the week you could find the U10, U13, and U15 batches practicing like never before in prep for the anxiously anticipated Sunday afternoon matches. The league featured nine teams for each age group - Warriors, Crocs, Tigers, Rhinos, Bears, Dragons, Pirates, Eagles, and Sharks.
Each week the teams came together to compete against those they had been practicing with for months. The atmosphere was one that all enjoyed. Players chasing the ball, coaches loudly giving instructions, the coffee machine grinding, fans enjoying banana bread, parents cheering...what a blast! By the final week, players had recruited extra friends and family to cheer them on. In the finals U10 featured the Warriors vs. the Rhinos, U13 the Bears vs. the Eagles, and in U15 the Rhinos vs. the Dragons. By the end of the afternoon, U10 named the Rhinos the champions, U13 the Eagles and U15 the Rhinos.
Parents made new memories and friends while their players fell more in love with a sport they were already passionate about. It was a great first season for the the Garden City Champions League!
