Football Delhi signs three-year partnership contract with JSW Sports
As part of the deal, JSW Sports will be the principal partner of Football Delhi, the governing body for the sport in the Capital, for the next three years.
Recently, Football Delhi has hired professional staff in different roles -- technical, marketing, finance, and management. A full-time professional and paid general secretary have been appointed.
Football Delhi has already announced some initiatives this year. The Delhi FA launched the Centre of Excellence for Girls in May, and the Golden League (Under-9 and Under-11) last month. Now this partnership with JSW could be a huge boost for the association.
"We are proud to partner with Football Delhi," Jindal said.
"We all know that football in Delhi has a glorious past but steps have to be taken to improve the game in the capital. We are confident that the able leadership of Football Delhi will ensure that football takes giant strides in the years to come."
He also mentioned the connection between his organization and Football Delhi, which points towards Delhi boy Sunil Chhetri. The India captain has played in Delhi earlier. Now he plies his trade with JSW-owned Bengaluru FC.
Chhetri's birthday on August 3 is being celebrated as Football Delhi Day.
JSW Sports is the sports arm of the JSW Group. Other than owning ISL side Bengaluru FC, the company also owns Haryana Steelers in the Pro Kabaddi League and also a 50 percent stake in IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils.
