8th February, 2015, Bangalore: The third edition of the Sunfeast Dream Cream Roots Football League organized by Game On Sports Management Pvt. Ltd. kicked off at the Holy Ghost Church grounds in Richards Town.
The two month long weekend football league has youngsters in the age groups of 4-15, demonstrating their football skills in a competitive environment. Divided in 5 categories; Under 7, Under 9, Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15, each of the teams will play a minimum of 6 matches to be crowned the champions of the league in their respective categories.

An opportunity for junior football players to participate in an organized playing environment, the Sunfeast Dream Cream Roots Football League is an initiative towards inspiring more children in these age groups to make football their preferred sport and consequently building the base of football in the community.
