Sreenidi Deccan FC was founded in 2015 with the vision of nurturing football talent in the country by providing an environment that inspired young players to be self-motivated and contribute positively to the sport. Having developed world class facilities and ensuring that promising players have access to the best coaching, training and support, SDFC have become an integral part of developing football in the country, and making India a globally competitive football nation.
The recently concluded SAFF U-16 Championship held in Bhutan was the cherry on the cake for the efforts put in by Sreenidi Deccan FC as two of the club’s academy players – Levis Zangminlun and Aiborlang Khartangmaw – played a key role in India winning the trophy, scoring two goals each along the way. Levis and Aiborlang are just two of many success stories SDFC can be proud of, having put in considerable time and resources into developing young Indian football players.
“We are immensely proud of Levis and Aiborlang for making their debut for the Indian National Football Team and winning the SAFF U-16 Championship,” said Dr. K.T. Mahhe, Chairman of Sreenidhi Educational Group. “Their performance in the tournament, with multiple goals scored, demonstrates the quality of the work that our Youth Academy has been doing over the past few years.”
Earlier this year, two more Academy boys – Sahil Tamang and Pauminthang Munsong – were called up for the India U-19 National Team Camp which was held in Bhubaneswar. Sreenidi Deccan FC also participated in various key youth tournaments across age-groups like the Reliance Foundation Development League (U-21), AIFF Youth Cup (U-17) and the JSW Youth Cup (U-15 and U-13).
Sreenidi Deccan FC have also made it their mission to identify promising football talent in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to help them develop their skills and achieve their potential. Two Academy boys – Tikam Reddy (Andhra Pradesh) and Rayyan bin Ghanam (Telangana) – have been promoted to the Sreenidi Deccan FC senior team for the upcoming I-League 2023-24 season.
“Our commitment to developing football in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh is undoubted and we look forward to having more players from these regions playing at the highest level and representing the country very soon,” reiterated Dr. K.T. Mahhe.
Sreenidi Deccan Football Club (SDFC) is part of Sreenidhi Educational Group which also includes Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology, Sreenidhi International School, KMR Foundation and Sreenidhi Sports Academy.
