Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools (BBFS) is an exciting initiative by India's longest-serving football captain - Bhaichung Bhutia. The founding team of Bhaichung Bhutia Football Schools came together with the vision of creating an ecosystem that nurtures and develops the will to Play, Learn and Master the beautiful game.

Right Methodology: Focuses on holistic development- technical, tactical, physical, mental & social. Right Platform: Right Intent: To be the best institute for holistic development of football professionals by pursuing excellence and nurturing relationships within the BBFS community in a sustainable manner. BBFS runs with the philosophy that no talented child should be deprived of coaching facilities and the right guidance due to lack of money. BBFS works jointly with the Indian Football Foundation towards providing scholarships to talented children and have supported over 350 players. BBFS looks to build a nurturing ecosystem to grow the sport, right from the grassroots level to professional pathways, while encouraging parent and coach interaction to form the best support system for a child.

To help our students flourish, we create a nurturing environment where they reside together in a spirit of singular purpose, combined with friendship and support.
