Double Pass Development League for grassroots start on Saturday

Double Pass Development League (DPDL), a community-based football league for grassroots and youth-level will kick-off on Saturday, June 29, at Kicks on Grass, Bellandur. DPDL is a community-based platform which enables development of football talent through structured and organised competition between football academies and schools. 

The objective of the league is to provide the kids an opportunity to experience a true season-like experience of 30 competitive games over a period of six months, similar to Europe, South America and other developed football nations.  

DPDL is supported by Karnataka State Football Association (KSFA) and recognised by the All India Football Federation (AIFF) under its player development initiative – Baby Leagues. 

The league will feature some of the top academies in Bangalore including the likes of Bengaluru FC, Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools, Roots Football School and Raman Sports Academy to name a few and provide an opportunity to ~500 kids from 39 teams across 3 age groups (Under 7, 9 & 11) in a total of 600+ matches from June 2019 to January 2020. 

Through the league, Double Pass, the host, will assess academies and provide international benchmarking. Also, they will be conducting workshops and masterclasses for coaches, staff, and parents to educate and assist in creating a state-of-the-art football talent development system.
