Subroto Cup’s status as a prestigious football tournament needs no further gratification and I feel glad to see that over the years it has only grown in stature and respect. With emphasis on the growth of Indian Football which is on the rise and the U17 Women’s World Cup scheduled next year, it’s very important for us to have tournaments attracting the youth. It’s these platforms which are the breeding ground for future stars and Indian football needs youngsters who can contribute positively to the game. I am sure like in the past, Subroto Cup will help in spotting some bright stars of the future this year as well.”
