AboutYoung Champs

The Reliance Foundation Young Champs (RFYC) academy launched in May 2015 with the vision of identifying talented young footballers and providing them an environment of excellence to unlock their potential both on and off the pitch.

Supported entirely by the Reliance Foundation, each year RFYC offers fully funded scholarships to young talents from across the country following a comprehensive yearlong scouting process.

At RFYC, we understand that each scholar is a child first, a player second and that not every player graduating from the academy will forge a professional career in the sport. We take our duty of care very seriously and holistic development of each individual child under scholarship is at the core of everything we do. Away from the pitch, we focus on imparting life skills and top - level education to each child who comes through our doors.

The academy is currently recognized by the All India Football Federation as the nation’s first only 5 Star rated residential academy under their ‘Academy Accreditation Programme', making RFYC the best academy in the country over the past few years. RFYC has also been awarded a 2 Star rating by the Asian Football Confederation under their ‘Elite Youth Scheme’, giving the academy recognition on a continental level.

Based in Navi Mumbai with state of the art facilities and dedicated multi-disciplinary full time staff, RFYC currently hosts 90 children from around the country playing across five age groups (U14, U15, U16, U17, & U19).
