Football in India has a promising future indeed, as has been proven by the recent success of the Indian Under 20 brigade at the COTIF Cup in Valencia where they beat champions Argentina. At Rustomjee ‘Childhoods Available’ is the underlying concept when we design our projects to ensure that children have the space, freedom and opportunities for mental and physical holistic development. Football and other sports are an integral part of growing up and children need to be given the right training and platform to showcase their talents and also learn valuable life lessons of team spirit, leadership and sportsmanship.”

Patil,Chairman, Mumbai District Football Association said, “The Mumbai District Football Association has always encouraged new initiatives towards the all round development of sports for all. We rely on active participation from various sections of the Society and are excited to welcome Rustomjee Builders to join hands as our official sponsors for unveiling the MDFA League.The MDFA provides a broader horizon to individuals with a shared passion for the game.We trust that together we will excel as an all encompassing community for professional football leagues.”

About MDFA

Mumbai District Football Association , the sole organizing body of all football activities in this city of Mumbai and its suburbs, is established in the year 1984 with its registered office at St. Xaviers ground, Parel. Initially there were only sixty (60) teams playing in the three division league which has slowly turned into 375 teams with five division leagues (men) and women League within a span of 34 years. At present MDFA League matches are conducted at Cooperage, St Xaviers’ Ground (Parel), MSSA, Mumbai Football Arena ( Andheri), Goan SA Ground (Cross Maidan) and Karnataka SA ground (Cross Maidan). From the last year onwards MDFA has started Youth League U-16, U-14, and U-12 Boys, which was a great success. This year MDFA has taken a great leap by deciding to organize Youth President League (YPL) for boys & girls and an additional Baby League U-10 and U-8 years. MDFA has also developed a ground allotted by MHADA at Bandra Reclamation which will be astro-turf and is expected to be ready in another month. MDFA-  now under the dynamic leadership of Shri. Aaditya Thackarey, is going ahead with various projects in a bigger way, which are present in the roadmap of the organization.
