Dheeraj, Coach and Media Specialist

A pro behind the football and the camera, Dheeraj is living the best of both worlds as a coach and media specialist for Bangalore City Football Club. Dheeraj began playing football at a young age. “My dad bought me a football and I was so excited I had to use it immediately. I called my friends and we started playing and I haven't stopped ever since,” he recounts from his childhood. Dheeraj’s love for the sport was easily transferred to coaching. When asked why he enjoys coaching he said, “I love the energy of the kids. It’s contagious!”

Dheeraj’s passion for football is not the only one he gets to constantly practice with his job at BCFC. When he was in high school, Dheeraj and a friend were introduced to editing video and he has enjoyed videography, photography, and all things media ever since. Although his media passions aren’t as old as his desire to play football, it isn’t any less fulfilling for him. For Dheeraj to be able to combine two things he is passionate about is a true blessing.
