In a bid to receive the old glory of football in these two States, SFC is currently running trials for its Youth teams to play Youth Hero I-League.


A record 600+ registrations have been received from across different age groups (sub-junior, junior, and elite), and have lifted the spirits of SFC, who feel that football in the State is still alive and they have a big role to play in this project. The trials were held at the lush green grounds of Sreenidhi FC.

Sreenidhi FC’s vision is to develop players capable of representing the state and national teams. In this regard they are coming up with a world-class complex dedicated to football with four pitches of international standards.


At a recent function during the trials, K. S. Sreenivasa Raju, Managing Director of the Sports Authority of Telangana State (SATS) and Secretary to the government – Tourism, Culture and Sports, motivated the players to take up the game while D Mohd Ali Rafath, president of the Telangana Football Association, encouraged the promising players to sustain and reach their goals.

The players were excited that they would have an opportunity to represent Sreenidhi FC in the Hero I-League in the future.

The final team will be finalised shortly although SFC may conduct a second round of trials by April/May. The Sreenidhi FC will announce the final list in May/June.
