The Indian Super League’s Delhi franchise was officially launched as Delhi Dynamos in a press conference at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Thursday.

A tie-up was also announced with Dutch giants Feyenoord but the franchise is yet to name their marquee player and manager.

The announcement was made by franchise owner Sameer Manchanda, CMD, DEN Networks Limited and also present was Feyenoord’s international relations manager Gido Vader.

As a part of the alliance, Feyenoord will share its immense knowledge of the sport and assist the Delhi Dynamos in overall development of its team in addition to providing world class players and technical staff.

“Football is the world’s biggest sport and is now set to become India’s leading sport. DEN is excited to be a part of India’s football movement. We hope the Delhi Dynamos will inject pride and passion to all Delhiites and football fans of the region. With Feyenoord Rotterdam, we look forward to building a team of world-class players who can inspire with their skills and represent our city’s hopes and aspirations. Our dream is to take India to the global football stage and ultimately to the FIFA World Cup,” Manchanda was quoted saying.

“Feyenoord Rotterdam is thrilled to be associated with the Delhi Dynamos. The Indian football opportunity is huge, and we are looking forward to assisting DEN in creating a fantastic team and ecosystem through the Indian Super League,” Vader stated.

Delhi Dynamos have already reportedly signed former Denmark strikers Mads Junker and Morten Skoubo as their two international players.
