About Youth Football India Foundation

Set with the objective to facilitate children with a passion and ability to play quality football, Youth Football India Foundation provides financial support to students to improve their skills through our sponsorship and training at the academy. We also sponsor NGO teams to play at the Delhi Youth League.

There YFI has now developed the YFI Talent Scholarship fund that allows children coming from a disadvantaged economic background to participate in the YFI academy at the American Embassy School and play in the Delhi Youth League as a part of the Youth Football Academy team. The fund also provides the players with outfit, shoes, shin-pads and transport money.

For a sponsorship amount of Rs. 70,000 (approx 850 GBP) the players will be able to play football for year, at the highest level in Delhi.
