AFC announces the second season of the Hyderabad Baby League today. The second season of a structured league system will allow the children of the city to participate free of cost. The event took place at the residence of Mr. Andrew Fleming, the British Deputy Commissioner for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and an avid football fan. Chief Guest of the event was Mr. Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Ministry of IT, Telangana. The concept of a baby league, in Hyderabad, started from last year. Baby League primarily involves kids between 3-12 years of age. The key sponsors of the event are NMDC, Telangana Football Association, Golden Baby Leagues in partnership with Fateh Hyderabad AFC and Premier. The venue partner is Hyderabad Riding and Polo Club and the kit & equipment partner is Decathlon & KASGO.

MAndrew Fleming approving of the initiative said “I am a huge football fan and I am glad that the second chapter of the Baby League has come up. Yogesh and his team are extremely passionate about football development and I am sure that this chapter will be equally successful as that of last year and will help children of this city to enjoy the thrill of match competition and bring communities together.”
 Yogesh Maurya, Technical and Sporting Director of Fateh Hyderabad AFC, shed more light on how the Hyderabad Baby League would function. “The League will be held for the Under 6, Under 8, Under 10 and Under 12 age groups.

 The cost of the league shall be borne entirely by Fateh Hyderabad AFC. Kids from local teams and schools are more than welcome to come and participate. The matches will be held on Sunday and will be geared towards making the participants enjoy themselves. We will be scouting the league for talent that can go into Fateh Hyderabad’ AFC’s U-13, U15 and U-18 teams. This chapter of the initiative is more advanced in terms of venue and sponsors.  Last year with over 600 children playing, we saw how powerful it is for families in the sporting community to come together and enjoy the game with their children. The Telangana Football Association iterated its support towards the initiative.
