In what can be labelled as a major boost to the country’s football economy, eight-time Bundesliga champion Borussia Dortmund has finally set its foot on the Indian soil. The Bundesliga giants, who triumphed in the German league in 2010-11 as well as 2011-12, made its way into the hearts of sports enthusiasts on Tuesday as they announced a collaboration with World1 Sports, an Indian-based football consultancy firm, promising to bring an opportunity for the country’s young footballers. 

The collaboration is expected to set the stage for expanding the game of football in India, where one can still find new lands for the sport to conquer. The fact that the German league has now inked a partnership with World1 Sports promises to offer technical expertise in abundance for understanding the importance of a sustainable grassroots system in India as a base for successful club development.

The initiative by Borussia Dortmund is expected to ramp up its activities in the country, with the sole objective of developing youth football and predicting a better future for India in the sport. Having had the opportunity to forge a relationship with Indian football, the German club assures to win more hearts and mould its brand further in India, as reported by the Sportstar


A persistent and pertinent observation that one can vouch for at this juncture is the possibility of the club making elite football ubiquitous across the Indian subcontinent. The aim is to garner knowledge on how kids can improve their training regime, who aspire to be footballers at a later stage. This escalates the possibility of the Indian contingent playing in Europe in the possible future. Dortmund’s managing director of the Asia-Pacific region, Suresh Letchmanan went a little further to hint at a possible tie-up with an Indian football club, iterating the club's intention to hunt for the best talent and ensure participation at the highest platform in Europe.
