The Reliance Foundation Young Champs academy (RFYC) kicked off in May 2015 with the vision of creating not only the nation’s next generation of football stars, but also its future role models and leaders.

Supported entirely by the Reliance Foundation, RFYC is a one of a kind full time residential football academy offering all expenses paid scholarships to young talented footballers from across the country.

In three short years, the academy is currently recognized by the All India Football Federation as the country's only 4 star residential academy under their 'Academy Accreditation Programme' making RFYC officially the best residential academy in the country (season 2017-18).

Based in Navi Mumbai, the academy currently hosts 60 children from around the country playing across four age groups (U12, U13, U14 & U16) with 16 full time staff dedicated to their development.

With holistic development of the children being the driving force behind what we do, the following are a few key aspects of the academy –

  • Equal focus on academics and education

  • Individualized development programmes
  • State of the art accommodation
