The Reliance Foundation Youth Sports (RFYS) Football League has become the bedrock of young football talent in India. As the 2023-24 season has moved on, the matches played at various Championship Centers in the North Zone have been nothing short of spectacular, with each game adding to the excitement of the league.
RFYS, over the years, have managed to reach out to different corners of the country and the latest addition to that during this season was the Kashmir Championship Center. For the first time, the tournament was held in Kashmir and the response was evidently amazing.
The Kashmir Championship Center which made its debut in the RFYS Season 2023-24 saw the boys competing in a couple of categories. In the under-15 category, SRM Welkin HR Secondary School emerged victorious. In the other category, that is in Under-21, the trophy went to University of Kashmir.
While it’s just the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the tournament, the action returned to other championship centers.
