Spelling out the mission, vision and goals of HFA, Pavan Kumar Duvva said "we are in pursuit of talent, both trained and raw. Our quest is to revive the football glory of Hyderabad by spotting and grooming the next big payer from the twin cities, who can put Hyderabad back on the global map. Our pursuit is to accelerate the love for football at all levels and promote the sport."
'We hope to bring along the best of players, coaches and administrators through this League so that Hyderabad can knit a cohesive outfit that can rub shoulders with the best in contemporary football. This is the stated goal of everyone at HFA/ averred Atif and Pavan.
A unique facet of BCFL is that it will feature mixed corporate teams in that professionals from various corporate companies can play together by representing the same franchise. They need not necessarily represent their employer. Players from Google, Deloitte, IBM, Facebook and Uber can be in the line-up of the same team.
The League will feature ten teams including 1 Galacticos FC, 2 Cyclone FC, 3 Nemesis, 4 Microsoft, 5 RaiderZ, 6 Hexa United, 7 Fnatic, 8 Novartis, 9 DE Shaw, 10HSBC.
We urge the media to give wide coverage and join in this mission to revive the golden age of Hyderabad football.
