What better way to start a new partnership or a new venture than starting it on the day India won its freedom. the first official league of this newest venture in Mumbai Football, Rustomjee – MDFA Yuva president League kicked off today(15th August) with the ritual of Flag hoisting early in the day setting the perfect tone for the league.

With football beginning to take center stage in India, corporate like Rustomjee taking up responsibility of sponsoring Mumbai District Football Association (MDFA) is not only a huge welcome sight for the Mumbai football but also gives a huge encouragement to all other footballers and peoples associated with the game. Its not just the financial support that makes the difference, the values on which the organisation runs, as the director of Rustomjee Mr Percy Chowdhry puts it ‘Childhoods Available’ the fact that the organisation believes in the importance of giving children the space, freedom and opportunities for their development is also very invigorating, here is hoping for this new partnership to take Mumbai football to greater heights.
