Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools is an exciting initiative by India's longest serving football captain Bhaichung Bhutia. BBFS currently offers football coaching through 28 training centers across the country in 10 cities to kids between the ages of 5 and 17 years. We have 9 training centers in Delhi/NCR, 13 centers in Bengaluru, 3 centers in Chandigarh, 2 centers in Mumbai and one in Dehradun. BBFS has ambitious plans to open similar training centers all across India.
BBFS aims to provide a platform to nature talent within grassroots & youth football and develop professional football players and coaches through its in-house training & development program designed & executed by some of the most talented young Indian football coaches and instructors in consultation with resident European instructors. BBFS is rated a 3-star academy in the AIFF (ALL India Football Federation) academy accreditation and participates in all (U13, U15 & U18) AIFF Youth Leagues.
We see BBFS as the first step for interested school kds towards becoming a professional footballer and by leveraging Bhaichung's leadership, experience and network, plan to provide the complete path to an amateur towards becoming a successful professional footballer. BBFS is working towards creating a complete ecosystem for player development through its training centers, advanced training centers (development squads & I-league squads), residential academy & professional club affiliations.
Team BBFS is only just over a hundred people — still a tight-knit group, considering everything that’s happened so far. Every week brings new challenges, and every week we work together to meet them. (We also have plenty of fun together: fun days, happy hours, trips, workshops, movies, lunches, and a lot of laughing:)
